There’re numerous web-based mail service providers that you can use, but using an email with your own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to check your mails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to check your emails if you choose one of our shared web hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that meets your requirements – you can download all email messages to your personal computer or you can store the messages on the server in case you’ve got a company and a number of employees need access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll simply need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you want to use your phone, we have detailed tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-based device.
