Acceleration has several mail hosting plans to choose from.
Mail Hosting allows for businesses and individuals to receive emails at their domain name.
An email client is a software application that allows you to send and receive email. Examples of email clients include Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Thunderbird. A detailed listing of available email clients can be found by reading this this Wikipedia.org article.
Mail Transfer Agents
A Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) is a set of software that allows for mail to be sent from one MTA to another utilizing the Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP). MTAs are also referred to as mail servers. When you have hosting services with Acceleration, our MTA talks to other MTAs throughout the world in order to send your mail from one e-mail address to another. Some common MTAs include Sendmail, Postfix, Exim, and Microsoft Exchange. You may have seen these names mentioned in e-mail bounce-back notifications.
POP3 and IMAP
Post Office Protocol (POP3) and Internet Messaging Access Protocol (IMAP) are protocols that allow for mail to be downloaded to a mail client. Almost all email clients support both protocols, as they are the most common methods for receiving and sending emails.
