If you have an email address with your own domain and not a third-party one, you will be able to use an email app such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird to check and manage your mailboxes. The advantage of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email protocols that you can choose from when you set up the application of your choice to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to keep a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and see the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to examine old emails in case there is a predicament with your Internet connectivity, which is a big advantage over web-based email services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to access your emails if you choose one of our hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that answers your needs – you can download all emails on your home computer or you can keep the emails on the email server in case you have a company and a number of employees need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve included elaborate tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based handheld device.
