In case email messages are a key part of your electronic correspondence with business associates or family members, you would be better off using an email address with your own personal domain and a mail service provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based service that entails restrictions in regards to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any software program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to examine the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with POP3, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the email server. What’s more, you will be able to make use of a lot of other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there is a temporary problem with your Internet connection, you can still check your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

Each and every web hosting plan that we offer will enable 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 select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use according to your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may decide to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to store the emails on the mail server – if you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even use your smartphone to examine your emails and we’ve added a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
