If email messages are an integral part of your online communication with business associates or relatives, you might be better off using a mailbox with your own domain and a provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, instead of using a web-based email service that entails restrictions in regards to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any software program – Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to see the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. On top of that, you’ll be able to use a lot of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a temporary issue with your Internet service, you can still check your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to access your emails if you order one of our web hosting. Our mail servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that meets your requirements – you can download all emails on your home computer or you can keep the messages on the mail server if you are running a firm and a number of employees need to gain 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 – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You will just have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d rather use your phone, we have comprehensive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-based handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server plan with us, you will be able to view your email messages from any device with ease. In case you’re on the road all the time, you can see our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android smartphones, and if you have a portable or a desktop PC, you can download our auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird and set up an email account with your preferred email software program without having to do anything manually. As we support both IMAP and POP3, you can go with the protocol that corresponds to your demands most – you may prefer to download personal email messages at your end, while if you use our email services for business purposes, you should opt for IMAP, so as to permit a lot of people to access a certain mailbox from separate devices.
