In case emails are an important component of your communication with business colleagues or relatives, it may be better to use an email account with your own personal domain name and a mail service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, rather than resorting to a web-based service that involves restrictions in regards to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to check your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to see the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the email server. Additionally, you will be able to make use of plenty of other useful options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that if there is a temporary problem with your Internet connectivity, you can still examine your emails as they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each cloud hosting plan 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 process, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to make use of depending on your preferences and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to keep the messages on the server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is part of our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-config file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email app – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your phone to examine your email messages and we’ve got an elaborate tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
