There’re lots of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having an email account with your very own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not encounter such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your 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 Website Hosting

Each and every cloud website hosting package that we offer will enable 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 pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all emails in case you’ve got a personal account and to keep the emails on the mail server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email client – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can use even your phone to check your email messages and we’ve got a comprehensive tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
