If email messages are a key part of your online correspondence with business partners or family members, it may be better to use an email with your own personal domain name and an email provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, rather than resorting to a web-based email service that involves restrictions with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to check your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to see the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Also, you’ll be able to take advantage of a lot of other handy options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that in case there’s a brief predicament with your Internet access, you can still examine your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to examine your emails if you buy any of our shared plans. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that fulfills your demands – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can leave the emails on the mail server in case you are running a firm and different employees need to get access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will only need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you’d like to use your phone, we’ve included in-depth tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-driven handheld device.
