POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
Find out more about the different e-mail protocol types and which type to decide on when connecting with a mail client.
In case you have a domain name and a hosting package for it, you will be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email software programs such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. During the process, you will be able to opt for 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 protocol, all messages will be downloaded on the device where the mailbox is set up, unless you specifically choose a copy to be saved on the server. In this way, you can choose if you want all your email correspondence to be kept on one single device, or if you would rather be able to view the email messages from various locations. The latter option is rather convenient for firms where different people working on separate machines need access to a certain mailbox.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any handheld or desktop device to check your email messages if you select any of our website hosting plans

Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that answers your demands – you can download all email messages on your home computer or you can leave the emails on the mail server if you are running a firm and a number of employees need to access them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook.
