If emails are an essential component of your electronic communication with business associates or family members, you would be better off using a mailbox with your own personal domain and a provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that involves limitations as to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to see the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the email server. On top of that, you’ll be able to take advantage of lots of other handy options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a temporary problem with your Internet access, you can still see your emails as they will be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Each cloud hosting package that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, 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 according to your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to keep the messages on the server – if you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software application – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even use your mobile phone to examine your emails and we have added a detailed tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
