There are numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but using a mailbox with your own domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you will not have such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to check your email messages, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to access your email messages if you pick any of our Linux cloud hosting. Our mail servers support both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that fits your demands – you can download all emails on your PC or you can store the messages on the server in case you have a firm and a number of employees need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You’ll only need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you would like to use your phone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.
