There are plenty of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your own domain will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions 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 protocols, you will not stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any program on your computer to access your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Each cloud website hosting package that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to make use of depending on your preferences and the purpose of the email account – you may decide to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to store the messages on the mail server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your phone to check your email messages and we’ve got a detailed tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

Our detailed tutorials with step-by-step screenshots will show you how to create an account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With any of these devices, you can choose if the emails should be downloaded or if they should remain on the server.
