POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
There are a few kinds of e-mail accounts out there - read more about their benefits and drawbacks.
In case you have a domain and a web hosting package for it, you will be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with applications such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. In the meantime, you will be able to choose one of the two most popular email delivery protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will enable you to access all email messages, but they will stay on the mail server, while with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded on the device where the mailbox is created, unless you specifically choose a copy to be stored on the server. Thus, you can choose if you want all your e-correspondence to be stored on one single device, or if you would rather be able to see the email messages from various locations. The latter alternative is rather convenient for corporations where a number of employees working on separate computers need to gain access to a specific email account.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to rely on based on your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may want to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to store the emails on the mail server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is included in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software program – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your smartphone to get your email messages and we have added an elaborate tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
