In case email messages are an important component of your correspondence with business partners or relatives, it might be better to use a mailbox with your very own personal domain and an email provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, instead of using a web-based email service that entails limitations with regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to check your email messages on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to examine the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the server. Furthermore, you’ll be able to use plenty of other handy options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there is a brief issue with your Internet service, you can still check your emails since they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to rely on depending on your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all emails if you’ve got a personal account and to leave the messages on the server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is built into our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your phone to check your email messages and we have added a detailed tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
