If you have an email with your own domain instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to access and manage your emails. The benefit of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to keep a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and see the messages from any location. You will also be able to view old email messages if there is a problem with your Internet access, which is a big advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to check your email messages if you purchase one of our shared website hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that answers your interests – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can store the messages on the server in case you have a company and a number of people need access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll simply have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you wish to use your phone, we have included in-depth tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven mobile device.
