If you have a mailbox with your own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email app such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to check and manage your mailboxes. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to keep a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and access the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to check old email messages if there is an issue with your Internet access, which is a huge advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to examine your email messages if you get one of our Linux cloud packages. Our mail servers offer support for both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fits your requirements – you can download all email messages onto your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the server if you’ve got a company and different people need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you would like to use your phone, we have in-depth tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered mobile device.
