    When using Outlook mail client why is IMAP so much slower than POP3 when moving between folders, deleting email etc?

    Can I make it faster?

    IMAP is across the internet and POP3 is local.

    It is going to be based on your internet access, as well as the loading of the data across the internet, in both directions.
