Hosted email is the most efficient way to manage your email requirements, whether for business or personal use. Host One offers secure, feature-packed email hosting with various systems of protocols available. These include POP3, SMTP, IMAP, and Hosted Exchange protocols.
What’s the difference?
With POP3, or Post Office Protocol 3, email is limited to being downloaded only to your local device. Accessing your email account from multiple devices is not an option; with this protocol, SMTP, or Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is used for the sending of email.
IMAP, or Internet Message Access Protocol, allows the user to access their email inbox from any computer, because the message is not downloaded to a local device, but instead read from the email service.
Most ideal for businesses, the Exchange server protocol supports the integration of many parts, including sent and received email, contacts, calendar information, and tasks. The benefits of Hosted Exchange are aplenty, not least of which are technical support and automatic ongoing software updates.
