In case you have an email address with your own domain and not a third-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software application such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to access and manage your email messages. The benefit of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to leave a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and check the messages from any place. You will also be able to examine old emails if there’s a problem with your Internet access, which is an advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to examine your emails if you buy any of our Linux cloud hosting. Our email servers support both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that answers your requirements – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can keep the emails on the email server if you are running a company and a number of employees need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll simply need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d rather use your smartphone, we have included comprehensive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven mobile device.
