In case you use an email with your own personal domain and not a third-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software application such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to access and manage your email accounts. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email delivery protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your preference to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to store a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and see the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to view old email messages in case there’s a predicament with your Internet connection, which is a huge advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each and every shared hosting package that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to make use of depending on your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to keep the messages on the mail server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software app – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your phone to check your email messages and we have added an exhaustive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
