In case you have an email with your very own personal domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email app such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to access and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such applications 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 app of your choosing to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to leave a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and view the email messages from any place. You will also be able to access old email messages in case there is a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is a big advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to check your email messages if you order one of our Linux cloud packages. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that answers your demands – you can download all email messages onto your personal computer or you can leave the emails on the mail server if you have a firm and different employees need to get access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a given mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will simply need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you’d like to use your smartphone, we’ve included in-depth tutorials on how to create an email account on an iOS- or an Android-based mobile device.
