There’re plenty of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your very own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, 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 retrieval protocols, you will not have such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to check your emails, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. 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 to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to check your email messages if you pick one of our Linux shared web hosting. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that matches your demands – you can download all emails onto your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the email server if you have a firm and a number of people need access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You’ll only have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. If you’d rather use your phone, we’ve included exhaustive tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven handheld device.
