In case emails are an essential part of your online communication with business partners or relatives, you may be better off using an email address with your very own personal domain and an email service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that entails restrictions as to the size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any app – Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to check the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the mail server. Plus, you will be able to take advantage of many other handy options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there’s a brief problem with your Internet connection, you can still see your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to view your emails if you opt for any of our shared web hosting. Our email servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that fulfills your requirements – you can download all email messages to your PC or you can keep the emails on the server if you have a company and different people need to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a given email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll only have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you’d rather use your smartphone, we’ve included detailed tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered mobile device.
