There are a lot of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but having an email address with your very own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you won’t bump into such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to check your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Each cloud hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of based on your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all emails if you have a personal account and to store the messages on the email server – if you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email application – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your mobile phone to check your email messages and we have included an exhaustive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
