If you have an email account with your own personal domain and not a third-party one, you will be able to make use of an email app such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and manage your email accounts. The benefit of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you set up the application of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you opt to leave a copy on the email server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and check the email messages from any place. You will also be able to examine old email messages in case there’s an issue with your Internet connection, which is a big advantage over web-based email services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any device to examine your email messages if you order any of our Linux cloud web hosting. Our mail servers support both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that fits your needs – you can download all email messages to your PC or you can keep the emails on the server if you are running a company and different employees need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will only need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you would rather use your phone, we’ve included elaborate tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-driven device.
