In case you use a mailbox with your very own personal domain name instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email software application such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to access and administer your email accounts. The benefit of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email delivery protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to keep a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and check the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to view old emails if there is an issue with your Internet service, which is a big advantage over web-based email services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to access your email messages if you opt for any of our Linux shared web hosting packages. Our mail servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that fulfills your demands – you can download all emails on your PC or you can leave the messages on the mail server in case you have a company and different employees need access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You’ll simply have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you want to use your smartphone, we’ve added detailed tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
