In case you have an email address with your own personal domain instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software app such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to access and administer your email accounts. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you set up the application of your choosing to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to save a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and check the messages from any location. You will also be able to access old email messages in case there’s an issue with your Internet connectivity, which is a huge advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or handheld device to examine your emails if you select one of our shared hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that fits your demands – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can keep the emails on the email server if you’ve got a company and a number of people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll just have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. If you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve included exhaustive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
