In case email messages are a vital part of your online correspondence with business partners or relatives, you may be better off using an email with your own domain name and an email service provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that entails limitations as to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to access your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any app – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to see the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the email server. Furthermore, you’ll be able to make use of plenty of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a temporary problem with your Internet connectivity, you can still examine your email messages since they will be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each shared hosting package that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to rely on based on your preferences and the purpose of your account – you may decide to download all emails if you’ve got a personal account and to keep the emails on the mail server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email application – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your phone to check your emails and we’ve got an exhaustive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
