Once you understand how email works and have created an email account, now you can check your email! There are a few important decisions you will make to begin checking your email for the first time, including choosing your email client and deciding if you want the email protocol to be IMAP or POP3.
An email client is a program used to manage your email. It allows you to send email, receive email, and much more. There are many different email clients available that you can use, ranging from free ones to ones that have a purchase fee. You do not have to use one of the ones we have highlighted, but we have chosen the most popular ones as examples of clients that are fully compatible with Web Hosting Hub.
With your hosting plan, three webmail clients are offered at no additional charge. The advantage of using a webmail client is that you can check your email from any computer with Internet access. SquirrelMail is the most basic and recommended for new users, while Roundcube and Horde have more advanced features.
When you setup your email address using POP and check your email, the emails are downloaded directly to the client and are removed from the server.
When you setup your email address using IMAP and check your email, the emails still remain on your hosting server and are only viewed by the client, not downloaded to the client.
Most business owners prefer to use IMAP, as it allows you to check your email through a desktop client, phone, or webmail and not miss any emails that were already received. However if you only use your email with one client from one location, then using POP3 will make your connection faster. Just make sure if you use POP3 that you keep a backup of any important emails, as once they are downloaded to your client there will not be a backup of the emails on your hosting server.
