In case you have a domain and a hosting account for it, you’ll be able to create email accounts for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with programs such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. During the process, you will be able to opt for one of the two most popular email retrieval protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to check all messages, but they will stay on the mail server, while with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device where the email account is configured, unless you specifically select a copy to be left on the server. In this way, you can choose if you would like all your e-correspondence to be kept on a single device, or if you would rather be able to examine the email messages from different places. The second option is rather convenient for companies where different employees working on separate computers need access to a particular mailbox.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to access your email messages if you pick one of our Linux shared web hosting packages. Our email servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that suits your requirements – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can store the messages on the mail server in case you’ve got a company and a number of people need to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will simply have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you would like to use your smartphone, we have comprehensive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven mobile device.
