POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
What kinds of e-mail accounts are available? Which kind should you opt for when you set up your e-mail program?
If 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 programs such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. In the meantime, you will be able to choose one of the two most popular email delivery protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to access all messages, but they will stay on the server, whereas with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device where the mailbox is set up, unless you specifically choose a copy to be left on the server. Thus, you can choose if you want all your email communication to be kept on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to check the email messages from numerous places. The latter alternative is pretty valuable for companies where different people working on separate computers need to gain access to a particular email account.

Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all emails to your personal computer or you can keep the messages on the email server in case you have a company and a number of people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up.
