There are a lot of web-based email service providers that you can use, but using an email address with your own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions 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 email retrieval protocols, you won’t have such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to check your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to access your email messages if you purchase any of our shared website hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that meets your requirements – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the server if you have a firm and a number of people need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll only need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you wish to use your smartphone, we have comprehensive tutorials on how to create an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.

You will not have to do anything manually. Our elaborate tutorials with step-by-step screen-caps will demonstrate to you how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android phone.
