If you have an email address with your very own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software app such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to access and manage your mailboxes. The benefit of using such apps 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 select from when you configure the application of your choice to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to save a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the 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 see the messages from any location. You will also be able to see old email messages if there is a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is a huge advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to check your emails if you buy any of our cloud hosting plans. Our email servers support both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that meets your demands – you can download all email messages on your personal computer or you can store the messages on the mail server in case you have a firm and a number of employees need to have access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You will simply need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you prefer to use your smartphone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-based mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server package with our company, you will be able to access your emails from any device without difficulty.

Since we support both POP3 and IMAP, you can choose the protocol that meets your needs most – you may decide to download personal emails locally at your end, whereas in case you use our email services for business purposes, you should opt for IMAP, so as to allow many individuals to access a given email account from separate computers.
