E-mail Protocols
"Most of us take e-mail for granted, but there are two servers involved in its smooth functioning: an incoming mail server and an outgoing mail server. When you send e-mails to others, SMTP is used. When you receive e-mail, POP3 and IMAP can be used."

"HTTP is a set of rules for exchanging files such as text, imnages, audio, video, and other multimedia on the Web. Web browsers and web servers usually use this protocol. When the user of a web browser requests a file by typing a website address or clicking on a hyperlink, the browser builds an HTTP request and sends it to the server. The web server in the destination machine receieves the request, does any necessary processing, and responds with the requested file and any associated media files."
