Have spent the last six months watching your videos, reading books and making notes. Anyway, am doing some certification pre-tests where I have to score 90% four times before I can sit my first 201-1001 exam and I feel like I'll be lucky to score 50%! I don't understand the questions full stop - if I did I might be able to figure out the answers. Here's one....
Joe, a user, sets up an IMAP connection on his smartphone to connect to webmail. Joe is able to view email, but he receives an error when trying to send a message, When viewing the mail client's configuration, Joe sees a valid SMTP server and port. What should Joe check NEXT to resolve the issue?
A. Make sure phone is not in airplane mode
B. Ensure the SSL/TLS option is being used
C. Check the account password is still valid
D. Configure the email account as a POP3 connection.
I chose C as I remembered that the credentials for sending aren't necessarily the same as incoming mail credentials but apparently I'm wrong and the answer is D. Configure the email account as a POP3 connection.
I'm baffled 'cos POP3 is for downloading email from a server (and optionally deleting it) not sending it. IMAP is basically POP3 with more features (you can work with email on a server as if it's on your local machine. So, can you explain this to me please as I'm feeling very deflated because the questions I'm being presented with don't seem to make a lot of sense despite over 200 hours worth of study! Why is the POP3 answer correct if the error message is when trying to send a message? HELP!
