In case emails are a vital part of your online communication with business colleagues or family members, you might be better off using an email with your very own personal domain and a provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, rather than resorting to a web-based email service that entails limitations with regard to the size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to view the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the server. Besides, you’ll be able to make use of lots of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a temporary issue with your Internet service, you can still examine your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to check your emails if you pick any of our Linux cloud hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that corresponds to your demands – you can download all emails to your PC or you can leave the messages on the email server if you have a company and a number of people need to get access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll only need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. If you want to use your phone, we have in-depth tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-based handheld device.
