If you have a domain name and a hosting package for it, you’ll be able to create email accounts for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email software programs such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. During the process, you’ll be able to select one of the two most popular email retrieval protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will enable you to check all email messages, but they will stay on the mail server, while with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded on the device where the mailbox is created, unless you explicitly choose a copy to be kept on the server. Thus, you can choose if you would like all your email communication to be stored on one single device, or if you would rather be able to view the emails from various places. The latter alternative is quite handy for organizations where different employees working on separate machines need to get access to a particular email account.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use any email client software and any handheld or desktop device to examine your email messages if you pick one of our shared website hosting. Our email servers support both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that answers your needs – you can download all email messages on your home computer or you can store the messages on the server in case you’ve got a company and a number of people need to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You will simply have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you would like to use your smartphone, we have elaborate tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven mobile device.
