In case emails are an indivisible part of your e-correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, you would be better off using an email address with your own domain name and a provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that entails limitations with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to check your email messages on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to see the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the server. Furthermore, you will be able to make use of many other handy options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that in case there’s a temporary predicament with your Internet connection, you can still view your emails since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each shared website hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to rely on in accordance with your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may choose to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to leave the emails on the server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even use your smartphone to access your email messages and we have an exhaustive tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
