If you’ve got a domain and a web hosting account for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or business purposes and to set them up with applications such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. During the process, you will be able to opt for one of the two popular email delivery protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first one will permit you to access all messages, but they will remain on the mail server, whereas with the second one, all messages will be downloaded onto the device where the email account is set up, unless you specifically select a copy to be kept on the server. In this way, you can choose if you want all your electronic communication to be stored on a single device, or if you’d rather be able to access the emails from many places. The second option is rather convenient for firms where a number of employees working on different machines need to access a certain mailbox.

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 purchase any of our Linux cloud packages. Our email servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that satisfies your needs – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can store the messages on the mail server in case you’ve got a company and a number of employees need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You’ll simply have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you would like to use your smartphone, we’ve added elaborate tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based device.
