There’re plenty of web-based email providers that you can use, but having a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to examine your emails if you buy any of our Linux shared web hosting. Our mail servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can store the emails on the server if you are running a company and a number of people need access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll just have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically.
