In case you have an email with your own personal domain instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to access and manage your emails. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email protocols that you can choose from when you set up the application of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to save a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and view the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to access old email messages if there is a problem with your Internet access, which is a huge advantage over web-based email services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

With a Linux shared hosting from us, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software app to check your emails. We offer support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, so you can select either one when you configure a mailbox depending on your own preference. To make things simpler, you can download a small file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you set up. You can quickly set up the latter with your preferred application by simply running that file on your PC. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two email services complement each other, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any PC where the given email account is configured.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company, you’ll be able to check your emails from any device easily. If you’re on the road all the time, you can see our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android smartphones, and if you use a desktop or a portable computer, you can download our auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird and set up a mailbox with your preferred email app without needing to do anything manually. As we support both IMAP and POP3, you can select the email retrieval protocol that satisfies your demands most – you may want to download personal email messages at your end, while in case you use our email services for commercial purposes, you should select IMAP, so as to permit a lot of people to access a particular email account from separate computers.
