If you have an email with your own personal domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email app such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to access and manage your email messages. 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 protocols that you can choose from when you configure the app of your preference to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to keep a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and see the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to examine old email messages in case there’s an issue with your Internet service, which is an enormous advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each shared web hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain 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 protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to use depending on your preferences and the purpose of the account – you may decide to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to save the messages on the server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email app – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even use your mobile phone to access your email messages and we’ve included an in-depth tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
