POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
What kinds of e-mail accounts are available? Which type should you opt for when you set up your e-mail program?
In case you have a domain name and a web hosting package for it, you will be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email software apps such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. In the meantime, you’ll be able to opt for one of the two most popular email delivery protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to examine all messages, but they will stay on the email server, while with the second protocol, all messages will be downloaded to the device where the email account is configured, unless you explicitly select a copy to be kept on the server. In this way, you can choose if you want all your e-communication to be stored on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to check the emails from various places. The latter option is rather convenient for businesses where a number of employees working on separate machines need to get access to a specific email account.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or handheld device to examine your emails if you select one of our Linux shared packages. Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that fits your needs – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can keep the messages on the email server if you’ve got a company and different employees need to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You’ll just have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve added comprehensive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based handheld device.
