POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
What types of e-mail accounts are available? Which type should you opt for when you configure your e-mail program?
If you’ve got a domain name and a web hosting account for it, you will be able to create email accounts for personal or business purposes and to set them up with clients such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose one of the two popular email delivery protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first one will enable you to view all messages, but they will remain on the email server, whereas with the second protocol, all messages will be downloaded on the device where the email account is configured, unless you explicitly select a copy to be kept on the server. In this way, you can choose if you’d like all your e-communication to be kept on a single device, or if you would rather be able to view the email messages from numerous places. The latter option is very useful for firms where different people working on different computers need to get access to a specific mailbox.

Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fits your interests – you can download all email messages onto your home computer or you can keep the emails on the email server if you’ve got a company and a number of people need to have access to them, for instance.
