If you use an email with your own domain name and not a third-party one, you will be able to use an email software application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and manage your email messages. The advantage of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email protocols that you can choose from when you set up the app of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to store a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and access the email messages from any location. You will also be able to examine old email messages if there’s a predicament with your Internet service, which is a big advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to check your emails if you choose any of our shared plans. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that matches your interests – you can download all emails to your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the email server in case you have a firm and a number of employees need to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll simply have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your phone, we have detailed tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven device.
