There’re a lot of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having an email address with your own domain name will grant you more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to check your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox 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 email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each and every shared hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of your account – you may decide to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to leave the emails on the email server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is built into our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software app – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can use even your phone to examine your email messages and we have added an elaborate tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
