There are numerous web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to check your email messages, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Each and every shared web hosting package that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to make use of according to your preference and the purpose of the account – you may decide to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to keep the messages on the email server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your smartphone to check your emails and we have added an exhaustive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
