If you have a domain and a web hosting package for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or business purposes and to set them up with email software programs such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. In the meantime, you will be able to pick one of the two most popular email delivery protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will enable you to examine all email messages, but they will remain on the email server, whereas with the second protocol, all messages will be downloaded on the device where the email account is set up, unless you specifically select a copy to be stored on the server. In this way, you can choose if you would like all your e-correspondence to be stored on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to check the emails from multiple locations. The latter option is rather valuable for corporations where a number of people working on separate machines need to access a given mailbox.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to view your email messages if you select one of our web hosting plans. Our mail servers support both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can keep the messages on the email server if you’ve got a company and different employees need to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a given email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will simply have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you wish to use your phone, we’ve included detailed tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-powered mobile device.
