In case email messages are an indivisible component of your online correspondence with business partners or relatives, it might be better to use an email with your very own personal domain and a provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, instead of using a web-based service that entails limitations as to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any client – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to see the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the email server. Plus, you will be able to take advantage of a lot of other handy options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a brief predicament with your Internet access, you can still view your email messages as they will be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each and every shared hosting package that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to make use of according to your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to keep the messages on the server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software app – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can use even your smartphone to access your emails and we have added an elaborate tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
