There’re a lot of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your own domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t come across such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your mails, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any device to check your emails if you opt for any of our Linux shared web hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that matches your requirements – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can store the emails on the mail server in case you are running a company and different employees need to be able to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will simply have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you want to use your smartphone, we’ve got detailed tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.
