-------------------------------------------------------Comparing IMAP to SMTP 
is like comparing a Chevy Corvette to an 18 wheeler.
They both provide transportation but both have different purposes and
designs.

IMAP is for reading/retrieving e-mail.

SMTP is for sending e-mail from client and sending/receiving e-mail between
e-mail servers.

Sorry to say this, but if one is asking a question like that, one needs to
step away from the Exchange server!
