There are lots of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having an email account with your very own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you won’t run into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your computer to check your email accounts, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox 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, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto 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 Web Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to check your emails if you purchase any of our web hosting plans. Our email servers support both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that satisfies your demands – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can keep the messages on the email server if you’ve got a company and different employees need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll just need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you’d rather use your phone, we’ve included in-depth tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server package with us, you’ll be able to examine your emails from any device with ease. If you’re travelling all the time, you can examine our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android mobile phones, and if you have a notebook or a desktop computer, you can download our auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird and set up an email account with your chosen email software program without the need to do anything manually. Since we offer support for both IMAP and POP3, you can select the protocol that suits your requirements most – you may want to download personal emails locally at your end, whereas in case you use our email services for commercial purposes, you should opt for IMAP, so as to permit many individuals to access a certain email account from different devices.
