POP IMAP Email

Email that promotes your business

Having an email address that matches your business name not only helps your brand image but it also makes it easier for your customers to contact you.

Once you have the perfect domain name,  you will have the ability to create any email address you want for your business or departments within the business, such as sales@yourdomainname.com or accounts@yourdomainname.com.

POP and IMAP Email

POP email is ideal for single users who want to access their emails either online using our own Freecom Webmail or via their email client such as Microsoft Outlook. Accessing the email via an email client downloads and saves all of the files locally to clients machine giving complete control to the user.

While IMAP emails provide functionality similar a POP account, IMAP accounts are able to read multiple folders, rather than just the inbox.

This is ideal for users who want to access their emails on multiple devices or have more than one user accessing the account.

IMAP emails are stored the server as well as a local copy on the device, allowing the email to be accessed across all the devices, for example, if you send an email from your mobile device, it will be visible in the sent items on your desktop.

In most cases, we would recommend an account to be set up using IMAP.

IMAP allows for the emails to be saved on the server, with a copy of the email being stored on your device which is recommend if you have multiple devices accessing the email.

Not only that, if the device you are using gets broken, or worse, stolen, the emails are saved on the server so they can be downloaded again when the email account is set up.

Our email service can be used on as many devices as you need, however depending on the amount of devices trying to access the account at the same time, you may have wait for a previous device to finish synchronising.

Your account can get full for many different reason, such as storing years worth of emails, or receiving many large email attachments.

Depending on the type of account (POP or IMAP), simply removing unwanted email can help reduce consumed space.
You can always request additional space for an email account if you want the ability to store more emails long term.

POP emails are saved on your device, so you can keep the emails for as long as you need. This includes taking copies or backups.

Emails stored on our server (or the webmail) will remain until you delete them, or until the email account is closed which will remove all stored emails.
