POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
Find out more on the different e-mail protocol types and which type to pick when setting up a mail client.
In case you’ve got a domain and a web hosting plan for it, you will be able to create mailboxes for personal or business purposes and to set them up with email clients such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. During the process, you’ll be able to choose one of the two popular protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first one will permit you to view all messages, but they will stay on the server, while with the second protocol, all messages will be downloaded on the device where the mailbox is configured, unless you specifically select a copy to be stored on the server. Thus, you can choose if you would like all your electronic communication to be stored on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to see the emails from many places. The second alternative is rather useful for companies where different employees working on separate machines need to access a certain mailbox.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to examine your email messages if you select any of our Linux cloud hosting. Our email servers support both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that meets your needs – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can leave the messages on the mail server in case you’ve got a company and a number of people need to access them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you wish to use your smartphone, we have exhaustive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-based device.
