There are numerous web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but having a mailbox with your own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you won’t have such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to access your emails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Each and every cloud website 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 process, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to use in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to keep the emails on the server – if you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is built into our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even use your mobile phone to view your emails and we have included a comprehensive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
