There are many web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your own domain name will give you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not come across such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to check your emails, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any device to examine your email messages if you get any of our hosting plans. Our mail servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that satisfies your needs – you can download all emails onto your PC or you can keep the emails on the server if you are running a company and different people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll only need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. If you’d like to use your phone, we have included elaborate tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered mobile device.

As we offer support for both IMAP and POP3, you can pick the email retrieval protocol that corresponds to your needs most – you may prefer to download personal email messages at your end, whereas if you use our email services for commercial purposes, you should go with IMAP, so as to permit lots of individuals to access a particular email account from different locations.
