If you’ve got a domain name and a web hosting account for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or business purposes and to set them up with email software applications such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. During the process, you will be able to choose one of the two most popular email retrieval protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to view all messages, but they will remain on the server, while with the second one, all messages will be downloaded to the device where the email account is created, unless you explicitly select a copy to be stored on the server. In this way, you can choose if you would like all your email communication to be kept on one single device, or if you would rather be able to view the emails from numerous locations. The second option is quite valuable for corporations where a number of employees working on different computers need to have access to a given email account.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any device to examine your email messages if you opt for any of our Linux shared hosting. Our email servers support both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that answers your interests – you can download all email messages to your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the server in case you have a company and a number of employees need access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you want to use your smartphone, we’ve got comprehensive tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven device.
