If email messages are a fundamental component of your online communication with business partners or family members, it may be better to use an email with your very own personal domain and an email provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, rather than relying on a web-based email service that involves restrictions as to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any software application – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to view the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the mail server. Also, you’ll be able to use plenty of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that in case there’s a brief issue with your Internet connection, you can still view your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to rely on based on your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to keep the messages on the server – if you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even use your mobile phone to access your emails and we’ve got a detailed tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
