In case you have an email address with your own domain name and not a third-party one, you will be able to use an email application such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird to access and manage your email messages. The benefit of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your liking to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to store a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and view the email messages from any location. You will also be able to examine old email messages if there’s a problem with your Internet connection, which is a big advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

With a Linux shared package from our company, you will be able to use any device and any email application to view your emails. We support the IMAP and POP3 protocols, so you can pick either of them when you set up an email account in accordance with your individual preferences. To make things simpler, you can download a small configuration file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you create. You can easily set up the latter with your preferred app by simply running that file on your PC. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two services go hand in hand, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given email account is configured.
