If email messages are a vital component of your correspondence with business partners or relatives, it would be better if you used an email account with your own personal domain name and an email service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, rather than resorting to a web-based email service that entails restrictions in regards to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to see the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the email server. Furthermore, you will be able to make use of lots of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there’s a temporary predicament with your Internet access, you can still see your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each and every cloud hosting package that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to rely on based on your preference and the purpose of the account – you may decide to download all emails in case you’ve got a personal account and to leave the messages on the mail server – if you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your mobile phone to examine your email messages and we have added a comprehensive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
