There are lots of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your very own personal domain will give you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t have such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to check your mails, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. 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 locally at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

With a Linux hosting from our company, you will be able to use any device and any email software app to access your email messages. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, so you can pick either of them when you configure an email account based on your personal preferences. To make things simpler, you can download a small configuration file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you create. You can effortlessly set up the latter with your chosen app by simply clicking on that file. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two email services go hand in hand, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given mailbox is set up.
