There are many web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email with your very own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to access your emails, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
With a web hosting from our company, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software app to check your email messages. We offer support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, so you can select either of them when you set up a mailbox according to your own preference. To make things simpler, you can download a small-sized configuration file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you set up. You can effortlessly set up the latter with your chosen application by simply running that file on your computer. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two email services go hand in hand, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any PC where the particular email account is set up.
