POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
What kinds of e-mail accounts are out there? Which type should you pick when you set up your e-mail program?
If you’ve got a domain and a hosting package for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email applications such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. During the process, you will be able to select one of the two popular protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first one will permit you to see all email messages, but they will remain on the server, whereas with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded on the device where the email account is set up, unless you specifically choose a copy to be kept on the server. Thus, you can choose if you want all your e-correspondence to be stored on a single device, or if you would rather be able to see the email messages from multiple places. The second alternative is pretty convenient for corporations where different employees working on different computers need access to a particular mailbox.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to view your email messages if you pick any of our Linux shared hosting packages. Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that corresponds to your demands – you can download all email messages onto your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the server in case you’ve got a company and different employees need access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will only have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you would like to use your phone, we have included elaborate tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-driven handheld device.
