In case email messages are an indispensable part of your online correspondence with business associates or relatives, it might be better to use an email with your very own personal domain and an email service provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that entails restrictions with regard to the size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to see the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Besides, you’ll be able to use a lot of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that if there’s a temporary predicament with your Internet connectivity, you can still view your email messages as they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
With a Linux shared web hosting from our company, you will be able to use any device and any email software application to access your email messages. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, so you can choose either one when you create an email account based on your personal preference. To make things easier, you can download a small configuration file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you set up. You can effortlessly set up the latter with your preferred app by simply running that file on your computer. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two email services complement each other, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the particular mailbox is set up.
