Webmails are based on email accounts, which are generally offered as part of a web hosting package. It includes Yahoo! Mail, GMail, HotMail and AOL Mail. Through a web browser, website owners can continuously access their emails and websites and be in constant touch with their customers, day in and day out. With the presence of wi-fi technology almost anywhere, problem appears to be nil in sending and receiving webmails.
With InMotion, unlimited email accounts are certainly included in their web hosting plan. It also has unlimited email forwarders and email auto-responders. Plus, setting it up is really quick and easy by just following simple instructions in their Email Getting Started Guide. If problems set in, their technical support staff is on stand-by to help 24/7.
To get started, simply follow these steps:
- Log into InMotion’s cPanel, click ‘email accounts’ and then ‘mail’.
- Upon being prompted to answer, put in your email address, password and the size of the mailbox you desire.

In accessing your emails, InMotion has an interesting advantage. Its servers have two protocols to choose from, the POP3 and IMAP protocols. Both have their own pros and cons, depending on your needs and lifestyle. For example, POP3 protocol will remove all emails from the server and download them onto your account. So, even without internet connection, it can be accessed, but through the use of one form of device only. On the other hand, with IMAP protocol, your emails will remain at all times with the server. So, you can have flexible access to it at any given time using any form of accessing device, but only if there is an internet connection.
But if you’re looking for a bit of convenience, then it’s probably good that your emails remain web-based. Meaning, you can check, send and receive emails, anytime and anywhere, by just logging into your web browser without need to do any reconfigurations. That’s it, you simply log in, and then it’s all yours to use. To properly administer it though, you just have to regularly de-clog your emails to maintain it at a manageable number.
In addition, don’t forget that InMotion has put in place Exclusive Max Speed Zones. By choosing a data center location nearest you, you can run your webmail account at a speed of 6 times faster than the usual.
