There’re lots of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but having an email with your own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your computer to check your emails, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. 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 locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or handheld device to view your email messages if you choose any of our Linux web hosting. Our email servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fits your demands – you can download all email messages onto your home computer or you can store the messages on the mail server if you’ve got a company and different employees need access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will only need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you would rather use your smartphone, we’ve added elaborate tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered mobile device.
