POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
There are several kinds of e-mail accounts in existence - discover more about their pros and cons.
If you’ve got a domain name and a hosting package for it, you’ll be able to create email accounts for personal or business purposes and to set them up with email programs such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. During the process, you will be able to choose one of the two most popular protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first one will allow you to examine all messages, but they will stay on the email server, whereas with the second protocol, all messages will be downloaded on the device where the mailbox is set up, unless you specifically choose a copy to be stored on the server. In this way, you can choose if you’d like all your e-correspondence to be kept on a single device, or if you’d rather be able to see the email messages from many places. The second alternative is pretty handy for businesses where a number of employees working on different machines need to have access to a given mailbox.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to view your emails if you get any of our hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that answers your demands – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can store the messages on the mail server in case you are running a firm and a number of employees need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will simply have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you would rather use your smartphone, we have exhaustive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven device.
