There are a lot of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but having an email with your own domain will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not run into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to access your emails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile device. 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 on your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to view your email messages if you order any of our Linux shared hosting. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that suits your demands – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can leave the messages on the email server if you are running a company and a number of employees 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, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d rather use your smartphone, we’ve got elaborate tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered mobile device.
