If you have an email account with your very own personal domain instead of a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software application such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird to access and administer your emails. The advantage of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to store a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and see the messages from any place. You will also be able to check old emails in case there is a problem with your Internet access, which is an enormous advantage over web-based email services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to examine your emails if you order any of our Linux shared hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that meets your demands – you can download all email messages on your home computer or you can store the messages on the mail server in case you’ve got a company and a number of employees need to have access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll just need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your phone, we have comprehensive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.
