In case you have a mailbox with your own personal domain instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email software app such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to check and manage your emails. The advantage of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email delivery protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you opt to leave a copy on the mail server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and access the email messages from any location. You will also be able to check old emails in case there is a predicament with your Internet connection, which is an advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to check your email messages if you opt for one of our Linux website hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that answers your requirements – you can download all email messages onto your home computer or you can keep the emails on the server if you are running a firm and different people need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll simply need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you wish to use your phone, we have added elaborate tutorials on how to create an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered device.
