If you have an email with your own domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email software app such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to access and administer your email messages. The benefit of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to save a copy on the mail server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and see the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to view old email messages if there is a problem with your Internet service, which is an enormous advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to view your email messages if you get any of our cloud hosting plans. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that suits your interests – you can download all email messages onto your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the mail server if 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 specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will only need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you would rather use your smartphone, we’ve added comprehensive tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-based device.
