In case emails are an essential component of your electronic correspondence with business associates or family members, it may be better to use an email account with your very own personal domain and a mail service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, rather than using a web-based email service that entails restrictions as to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to check your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to see the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the email server. What’s more, you’ll be able to use lots of other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there is a brief predicament with your Internet connectivity, you can still view your emails since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Each and every cloud hosting package that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to rely on based on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may decide to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to keep the messages on the email server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email application – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even use your phone to get your emails and we’ve included an exhaustive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
