In case email messages are an essential component of your correspondence with business associates or family members, it may be better to use an email account with your very own personal domain and an email service provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based service that involves restrictions as to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to check your email messages on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to examine the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the email server. On top of that, you will be able to take advantage of lots of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that if there is a temporary issue with your Internet service, you can still check your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

Each and every hosting plan that we offer will enable 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 select between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to rely on based on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may choose to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to keep the messages on the server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is part of our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small file, so as to set up an email account with an email software app – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even use your mobile phone to examine your email messages and we have added a comprehensive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
