An email account is an actual mailbox that has its own username and password, and stores incoming messages that take up space within the mailbox on our servers.

Email accounts come with the
Trash folders by default. You may create additional folders as desired.

Inbox folder by default.
You may access email accounts via any modern email app such as Apple Mail, Microsoft Outlook, and Mozilla Thunderbird. Both IMAP and POP3 protocols are supported, and utilize TLS/SSL to ensure secure connections.
You may also access them via any modern web browser such as Safari, Firefox, and Google Chrome, through a selection of webmail apps supplied with your HostM hosting account. Webmail utilizes HTTPS for secure connections.
