In case you have a domain and a hosting plan for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email software programs such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. During the procedure, you will be able to select one of the two popular email retrieval protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to access all email messages, but they will stay on the email server, whereas with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device where the mailbox is created, unless you specifically select a copy to be saved on the server. In this way, you can choose if you would like all your electronic correspondence to be stored on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to view the email messages from multiple locations. The second alternative is extremely convenient for firms where different employees working on different computers need to have access to a certain mailbox.

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 view your email messages if you pick one of our Linux cloud hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that matches your requirements – you can download all emails onto your PC or you can keep the emails on the email server in case you have a firm and different people need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You will just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you want to use your smartphone, we have detailed tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered mobile device.
