In case emails are an important part of your electronic correspondence with business associates or relatives, it would be better to use a mailbox with your own personal domain and an email provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that entails limitations in regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to access your email messages on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to view the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. On top of that, you will be able to make use of lots of other useful options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a temporary issue with your Internet service, you can still view your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to view your emails if you order any of our shared hosting. Our email servers support both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can store the emails on the email server in case you are running a firm and a number of people need to have access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d like to use your phone, we’ve added comprehensive tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.
