There’re many web-based email service providers that you can use, but having an email with your very own personal domain will give you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t have such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to check your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. 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, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, 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

Each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to make use of in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to save the emails on the server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email app – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can use even your mobile phone to check your emails and we have included an exhaustive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
