There are lots of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you won’t face such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to access your mailboxes, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account 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 email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to check your email messages if you buy one of our Linux hosting packages. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that matches your requirements – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can keep the emails on the mail server if you’ve got a firm and a number of employees need access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll only have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d rather use your smartphone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven handheld device.
