If email messages are a fundamental part of your communication with business associates or family members, you might be better off using an email address with your own domain name and an email service provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, instead of using a web-based service that entails limitations as to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to examine the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the email server. Furthermore, you’ll be able to make use of a lot of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there’s a brief issue with your Internet access, you can still check your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

Each and every website hosting package that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to use according to your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all emails if you have a personal account and to leave the messages on the mail server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is part of our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small file, so as to set up an email account with an email app – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even use your phone to check your email messages and we’ve got an elaborate tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
