In case emails are a vital part of your online correspondence with business colleagues or family members, it might be better to use an email with your own domain and an email provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, rather than using a web-based service that involves restrictions in regards to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to see the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with POP3, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the mail server. Furthermore, you’ll be able to make use of plenty of other handy options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a temporary predicament with your Internet connection, you can still check your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to view your email messages if you pick any of our shared hosting. Our mail servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all email messages onto your home computer or you can leave the emails on the mail server if you have a company and different people need to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You will just need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you prefer to use your smartphone, we have elaborate tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-based handheld device.
