There are lots of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you won’t bump into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to check your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to check your email messages if you get one of our shared plans. Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that suits your interests – you can download all email messages onto your personal computer or you can leave the emails on the email server if you have a firm and a number of people need to get access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will just have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your smartphone, we have exhaustive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.
