In case emails are an integral part of your electronic communication with business associates or family members, it would be better if you used an email address with your own domain and a mail service provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, rather than using a web-based email service that involves restrictions with regard to the size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to check your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software program – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to view the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Moreover, you’ll be able to make use of plenty of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there is a brief predicament with your Internet connection, you can still check your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or handheld device to examine your email messages if you opt for one of our Linux shared hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that suits your requirements – you can download all email messages on your personal computer or you can keep the messages on the mail server in case you are running a firm and a number of employees need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will only have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you would like to use your smartphone, we have exhaustive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-based device.
