If you have an email address with your own domain and not a third-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software app such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and administer 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 retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your choice to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to store a copy on the server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and view the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to view old emails in case there’s an issue with your Internet service, which is a big advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to examine your email messages if you select one of our shared website hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that satisfies your requirements – you can download all email messages onto your personal computer or you can keep the messages on the server if you’ve got a firm and a number of employees need to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll only need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you’d rather use your phone, we’ve got in-depth tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based device.
