POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
What types of e-mail accounts are available? Which kind should you choose when you configure your e-mail program?
If you’ve got a domain name and a hosting plan for it, you will be able to create email accounts for personal or business purposes and to set them up with software programs such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. During the procedure, you’ll be able to choose one of the two popular email delivery protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to see all email messages, but they will remain on the email server, whereas with the second one, all messages will be downloaded onto the device where the mailbox is created, unless you specifically select a copy to be left on the server. In this way, you can choose if you’d like all your email communication to be kept on a single device, or if you’d rather be able to see the emails from multiple places. The second alternative is rather useful for businesses where a number of employees working on separate computers need to access a particular email account.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
With a cloud plan from us, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software app to see your emails. We support the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, so you can select either of them when you create a mailbox based on your own preference. To make things easier, you can download a small configuration file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you create. You can automatically set up the latter with your desired app by simply clicking on that file. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two services go hand in hand, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any PC where the particular mailbox is set up.
