IMAP - POA or GWIA?

I noticed that both the POA and the GWIA have an IMAP feature.

Which one should I use and why?

From my experience definitively GWIA.

IMAP is/can be a very aggressive protocol. So if IMAP kills your service than maybe  your GWIA dies. But if your POA dies, then all your users will suffer this problem; not only IMAP users.

However there can be a reason to open IMAP at POA, if another service needs access to perform tasks. I.e your Secure Message Gateways scans all mailboxes to search for viruses or phishing mails.
