If email messages are a vital part of your online communication with business colleagues or relatives, you would be better off using an email address with your very own personal domain name and a provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, instead of relying on a web-based service that involves restrictions with regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to check your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to examine the emails at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the mail server. Plus, you will be able to use lots of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that if there’s a brief predicament with your Internet connection, you can still see your emails since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to examine your emails if you order any of our web hosting plans. Our mail servers support both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fits your requirements – you can download all emails on your home computer or you can store the messages on the server if you have a company and different employees need to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You’ll only have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you would like to use your phone, we have added in-depth tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use a semi-dedicated server package with us, you will be able to access your email messages from any device effortlessly. If you are non-stop on the move, you can see our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android mobile phones, and in case you use a laptop or a desktop PC, you can download our auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail and set up a mailbox with your chosen email program without needing to do anything manually. Since we offer support for both POP3 and IMAP, you can opt for the email protocol that corresponds to your needs most – you may prefer to download personal emails locally at your end, whereas if you use our services for commercial purposes, you should go with IMAP, so as to permit multiple people to access a given email account from different computers.
