There’re numerous web-based email service providers that you can use, but using an email with your very own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not face such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your emails, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Each cloud web hosting package that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to make use of depending on your preferences and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to save the messages on the server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is included in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email app – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your mobile phone to view your emails and we’ve included an elaborate tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
