If you’ve got a domain name and a hosting package for it, you will be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email software programs such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. During the process, you will be able to select one of the two popular email delivery protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first one will enable you to access all email messages, but they will stay on the mail server, while with the second one, all email messages will be downloaded to the device where the email account is created, unless you specifically select a copy to be saved on the server. Thus, you can choose if you would like all your electronic correspondence to be stored on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to access the email messages from different locations. The latter alternative is rather convenient for firms where a number of employees working on separate machines need to have access to a certain mailbox.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to check your email messages if you choose one of our Linux shared website hosting packages. Our email servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that satisfies your demands – you can download all emails on your home computer or you can keep the emails on the server in case you’ve got a company and a number of people need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a given email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll only have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your phone, we’ve included exhaustive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered device.
