In case emails are an indivisible part of your online communication with business partners or family members, it might be better to use an email account with your own domain and a mail service provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that involves limitations with regard to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any app – Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to examine the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the mail server. Besides, you’ll be able to take advantage of many other handy options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there is a brief problem with your Internet service, you can still see your emails as they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each shared web hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to rely on depending on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may want to download all emails if you have a personal account and to keep the messages on the mail server – if you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email client – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can use even your phone to check your email messages and we have included a detailed tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
