To use your own email software (such as Outlook), you need to have POP, IMAP or SMTP on your hosting account to access your email accounts.
Unfortunately, on free hosting accounts IMAP, POP and SMTP are unavailable. The only way to access your inbox being through our Webmail client, accessible through your contol panel.
Premium hosting supports POP, IMAP and SMTP, allowing you to use your own email software. In addition, you also get unlimited email accounts, powerful spam filters to protect your accounts, and access to 2 more webmail clients (Horde and SquirrelMail) in addition to the current RoundCude client.
