There are numerous web-based mail service providers that you can use, but having an email with your own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, 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 offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you won’t bump into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your email messages, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each and every shared hosting package that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use depending on your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may want to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to store the messages on the server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can use even your smartphone to check your emails and we’ve got a detailed tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
