There’re numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email account with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you will not encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to check your mailboxes, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of based on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may want to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the server – if you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software program – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even use your phone to check your email messages and we’ve got an in-depth tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
