In case you’ve got a domain and a web hosting account for it, you will be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email software apps such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. During the procedure, you will be able to select one of the two most popular email protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to see all email messages, but they will stay on the mail server, whereas with the second one, all email messages will be downloaded to the device where the mailbox is configured, unless you specifically select a copy to be saved on the server. Thus, you can choose if you want all your e-correspondence to be stored on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to access the emails from various locations. The second option is very useful for businesses where different people working on different machines need to gain access to a given mailbox.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use based on your preference and the purpose of the account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to keep the emails on the mail server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can use even your phone to access your emails and we have an in-depth tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
