If emails are a vital part of your e-correspondence with business colleagues or family members, it would be better to use an email account with your very own personal domain name and an email service provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that entails restrictions with regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to check your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to see the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the mail server. Plus, you will be able to take advantage of plenty of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that in case there is a brief predicament with your Internet connectivity, you can still view your emails since they will be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or handheld device to examine your emails if you buy one of our shared website hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that corresponds to your interests – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can keep the messages on the mail server if you have a firm and a number of people need to get access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll only have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you would rather use your phone, we’ve added comprehensive tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
