There’re a lot of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you will not experience such problems and you will be able to use any program on your computer to access your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any device to access your email messages if you select one of our shared hosting plans. Our mail servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that corresponds to your interests – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can keep the emails on the server if you have a firm and a number of people need to get access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will only need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you would like to use your smartphone, we have included in-depth tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-based handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us, you will be able to view your email messages from any device without effort. If you’re non-stop on the move, you can see our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android smartphones, and in case you have a desktop PC or a laptop, you can download our auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail and set up an email account with your preferred program without the need to do anything manually. As we support both IMAP and POP3, you can opt for the email retrieval protocol that fits your requirements best – you may decide to download personal emails locally at your end, while if you use our services for commercial purposes, you should go with IMAP, so as to permit numerous individuals to check a given email account from separate locations.
