If emails are an essential part of your online communication with business associates or family members, it might be better to use an email account with your own domain and an email service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, rather than using a web-based email service that involves restrictions as to the size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to access your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to check the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the email server. Besides, you will be able to use many other useful options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a temporary problem with your Internet service, you can still see your emails as they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each and every shared hosting package that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to use based on your preferences and the purpose of the account – you may want to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to save the messages on the server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is part of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even use your smartphone to access your email messages and we have an in-depth tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
