There’re a lot of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your very own personal domain will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you won’t face such problems and you will be able to use any program on your computer to check your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Each cloud website hosting package that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to rely on in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all emails if you’ve got a personal account and to save the emails on the server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software application – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can use even your mobile phone to check your emails and we’ve included a detailed tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
