If emails are a key part of your communication with business associates or family members, it may be better to use an email account with your own domain name and a provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, instead of relying on a web-based email service that entails limitations as to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to access your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to see the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with POP3, all emails will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the server. Plus, you’ll be able to use a lot of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that in case there is a brief problem with your Internet connection, you can still view your emails as they will be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

With a Linux shared website hosting package from us, you’ll be able to use any device and any email application to see your email messages. We offer support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, so you can select either one of them when you create an email account according to your personal preference. To make things simpler, you can download a small file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you create. You can automatically set up the latter with your preferred application by simply running that file on your PC. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two services are synchronized, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given mailbox is set up.
