POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
There are a few types of e-mail accounts available - find out more about their benefits and drawbacks.
In case you’ve got a domain name and a web hosting package for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with software programs such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. In the meantime, you will be able to opt for one of the two most popular email retrieval protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will permit you to view all messages, but they will stay on the mail server, while with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device where the mailbox is set up, unless you explicitly choose a copy to be saved on the server. Thus, you can choose if you want all your e-communication to be stored on a single device, or if you would rather be able to see the emails from various places. The latter alternative is very useful for businesses where a number of people working on different machines need access to a given mailbox.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each and every shared web hosting package that we offer will enable 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 pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to make use of according to your preferences and the purpose of your account – you may decide to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to keep the messages on the email server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even use your mobile phone to view your email messages and we’ve included an exhaustive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
