If you use an email account with your own personal domain instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email application such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to check and manage your email messages. The benefit of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can select from when you set up the application of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to leave a copy on the server. With the second protocol, 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 account on multiple devices and view the email messages from any place. You will also be able to view old email messages if there’s an issue with your Internet service, which is an immense advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to examine your email messages if you choose any of our Linux cloud website hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that matches your needs – you can download all emails onto your personal computer or you can keep the messages on the server in case you have a firm and a number of employees need access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You’ll only need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you would rather use your smartphone, we have in-depth tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.
