If you have an email account with your own personal domain instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email software application such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird to access and manage your mailboxes. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email protocols that you can choose from when you set up the app of your choosing to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to store a copy on the email server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and check the messages from any location. You’ll also be able to examine old emails if there is a problem with your Internet service, which is a huge advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each and every shared hosting package that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes 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 delivery protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use based on your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may want to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the mail server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your phone to examine your emails and we have an exhaustive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
