In case you have an email account with your own domain and not a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email app such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to access and administer your email accounts. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your liking to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to save a copy on the email server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and check the messages from any location. You will also be able to view old emails if there is a problem with your Internet connection, which is an advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to access your emails if you get one of our Linux shared hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that fulfills your requirements – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can store the emails on the email server in case you have a firm and different people need to access them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll just need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. If you would like to use your smartphone, we’ve included comprehensive tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-based device.
