If you have an email address with your very own personal domain instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email software app such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to access and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to store a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and see the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to access old emails if there is a predicament with your Internet access, which is an advantage over web-based email services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or handheld device to view your email messages if you select one of our Linux cloud web hosting. Our email servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fulfills your demands – you can download all email messages to your PC or you can keep the emails on the server if you have a firm and different employees need to access them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll only have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you prefer to use your phone, we’ve included elaborate tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven mobile device.
