In case you have an email with your own personal domain and not a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email application such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to access and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email delivery protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to leave a copy on the mail server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and check the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to examine old email messages in case there is an issue with your Internet access, which is a big advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to examine your email messages if you opt for any of our shared web hosting. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fits your needs – you can download all emails on your home computer or you can leave the messages on the email server in case you are running a company and different people need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You will just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you prefer to use your phone, we’ve got in-depth tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-based device.
