In case you have a domain and a hosting account for it, you will be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email apps such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. In the meantime, you’ll be able to opt for one of the two popular protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first one will allow you to see all email messages, but they will stay on the mail server, while with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded on the device where the email account is set up, unless you explicitly choose a copy to be kept on the server. In this way, you can choose if you’d like all your e-communication to be stored on a single device, or if you’d rather be able to examine the email messages from various places. The second option is very valuable for companies where a number of employees working on separate machines need to gain access to a specific mailbox.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to view your emails if you get one of our website hosting plans. Our mail servers offer support for both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that fits your needs – you can download all email messages to your PC or you can keep the messages on the server if you have a firm and different employees need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will just need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d rather use your phone, we have added in-depth tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-powered mobile device.
