If you use an email address with your own personal domain instead of a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email software application such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to check and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you set up the application of your liking to access your email account – 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 mail 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 email account on multiple devices and see the email messages from any place. You will also be able to check old emails in case there is a predicament with your Internet connection, which is a big advantage over a web-based 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 select between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to use in accordance with your preference and the purpose of your account – you may decide to download all emails in case you’ve got a personal account and to store the messages on the email server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email program – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can use even your smartphone to access your email messages and we’ve added an in-depth tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
