POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
What kinds of e-mail accounts are available? Which kind should you choose when you set up your e-mail program?
In case you have a domain name and a hosting plan for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or business purposes and to set them up with applications such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. During the process, you’ll be able to opt for one of the two most popular email protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to view all messages, but they will stay on the email server, whereas with the second one, all email messages will be downloaded to the device where the mailbox is created, unless you specifically choose a copy to be kept on the server. In this way, you can choose if you’d like all your email communication to be stored on one single device, or if you would rather be able to see the emails from numerous places. The second alternative is extremely useful for organizations where a number of employees working on different machines need to get access to a given email account.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
With a shared website hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software application to view your email messages. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, so you can choose either of them when you configure an email account depending on your individual preferences. To make things simpler, you can download a small-sized file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you set up. You can automatically set up the latter with your preferred application by simply clicking on that file. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two services are synchronized, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the particular email account is configured.
