In case email messages are an essential component of your electronic communication with business colleagues or relatives, it might be better to use an email address with your very own personal domain and an email service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that involves limitations with regards to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to access your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, and so forth. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to view the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the server. Furthermore, you will be able to make use of many other useful options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that if there is a brief issue with your Internet access, you can still see your emails as they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting
You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to examine your emails if you pick one of our Linux website hosting services. Our email servers support both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that meets your interests – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can keep the messages on the server if you have a firm and a number of employees need to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will simply need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you wish to use your smartphone, we have elaborate tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
