Email hosting offers several advantages, including:
- Professionalism: A custom domain email adds credibility and professionalism to your business or personal brand.
- Branding: You can reinforce your brand by using your domain name in email addresses.
- Security: Email hosting services often come with robust security features to protect against spam, malware, and phishing attacks.
- Customization: You can customize email settings and features according to your needs.

Yes, you can use email hosting with an existing domain. If you have already registered a domain with a domain registrar, you can subscribe to an email hosting service separately and set up email addresses associated with your domain.
With POP3, all email data is downloaded to your app, accessible offline, and new emails are stored in the OUTBOX for sending when online. You can delete downloaded emails from the server or leave copies for a set time to save hosting space. IMAP syncs email content between your app and the mail server, requiring an online connection to access your mail status. Emails across devices and webmail are identical as they sync with the server.
