If you have a domain and a web hosting account for it, you will be able to create email accounts for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email clients such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. In the meantime, you’ll be able to opt for one of the two popular protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will enable you to see all messages, but they will stay on the mail server, while with the second one, all messages will be downloaded on the device where the mailbox is set up, unless you specifically choose a copy to be saved on the server. In this way, you can choose if you want all your e-correspondence to be kept on a single device, or if you’d rather be able to view the email messages from various locations. The latter option is rather handy for organizations where a number of people working on separate machines need to gain access to a certain mailbox.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to access your email messages if you get any of our cloud web hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that meets your requirements – you can download all emails to your PC or you can store the emails on the email server in case you have a company and different employees need to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will only need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you’d rather use your smartphone, we have in-depth tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven device.
