If you have a domain and a hosting plan for it, you’ll be able to create email accounts for personal or business purposes and to set them up with software apps such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. In the meantime, you’ll be able to select one of the two most popular email protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will permit you to check all email messages, but they will stay on the mail server, whereas with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device where the email account is set up, unless you specifically choose a copy to be left on the server. In this way, you can choose if you’d like all your electronic correspondence to be kept on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to examine the email messages from numerous locations. The latter option is quite valuable for organizations where a number of people working on separate machines need to access a specific email account.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to examine your emails if you choose any of our Linux cloud packages. Our mail servers offer support for both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that answers your requirements – you can download all email messages on your home computer or you can store the messages on the mail server if you have a firm and a number of people need to get 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 clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you’d like to use your smartphone, we’ve added comprehensive tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven mobile device.
