POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
Find out more about the several e-mail protocol types and which type to pick out when setting up a mail client.
In case you have a domain name and a hosting plan for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email software programs such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. During the process, you’ll be able to choose one of the two most popular email retrieval protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will permit you to see all email messages, but they will remain on the email server, while with the second one, all email messages will be downloaded to the device where the mailbox is set up, unless you specifically choose a copy to be saved on the server. Thus, you can choose if you’d like all your e-correspondence to be kept on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to see the emails from many locations. The second alternative is extremely handy for corporations where different employees working on separate computers need to have access to a given mailbox.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to check your emails if you purchase one of our cloud web hosting plans. Our mail servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that fits your interests – you can download all emails onto your PC or you can store the emails on the server in case you’ve got a firm and a number of employees need access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. 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 phone, we have added in-depth tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.
