There are lots of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your very own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to check your emails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Each cloud web hosting package that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to use in accordance with your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may want to download all emails if you’ve got a personal account and to leave the messages on the mail server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is part of our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email program – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your mobile phone to get your email messages and we’ve got an exhaustive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
