If emails are a fundamental component of your e-correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, it might be better to use an email account with your own domain and an email service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, instead of relying on a web-based service that entails restrictions with regard to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to check your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to view the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the server. Also, you’ll be able to use lots of other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a temporary predicament with your Internet service, you can still view your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to access your email messages if you buy any of our cloud hosting. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fits your needs – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can keep the messages on the mail server in case you are running a company and a number of people need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You’ll only have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d like to use your phone, we have added in-depth tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.
