If email messages are a fundamental part of your electronic correspondence with business colleagues or family members, it might be better to use an email address with your very own personal domain name and a provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that entails limitations with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to access your email messages on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to examine the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Furthermore, you will be able to make use of a lot of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that if there is a temporary issue with your Internet access, you can still examine your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each cloud hosting package that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to rely on based on your preferences and the purpose of your account – you may choose to download all emails if you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the mail server – if you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email client – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can use even your phone to check your emails and we’ve included an elaborate tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
