If you have an email with your very own personal domain instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to use an email application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and administer your emails. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email delivery protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to keep a copy on the server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and view the messages from any location. You will also be able to examine old emails if there is a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is a huge advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Each shared web hosting package 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 choose which one to use in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may want to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to save the messages on the email server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is built into our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email client – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can use even your phone to get your emails and we have added an exhaustive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
