Using personal domain e-mails on multiple devices

My girlfriend has her own website, and with the hosting comes a bunch of e-mail options. So, we originally set her an e-mail, and made her Gmail retrieve those.

The issue is that, when Gmail retrieve those mails, they do not delete themselves on the server. (Actually I just found a Gmail setting that would make it delete the mails on the server after being retrieved... but that's not the point of this post)

Is there a way to use her own e-mail instead of depending on Gmail for everything? It's easy to use on Gmail right now, but she pays for the domain, she might as well use it...

She uses one computer, an Android smartphone and soon a Surface tablet. So she'd like a solution that could be used from any of those, and if possible, from anywhere.

Through her cpanel she has access to a few webmail "apps", but it takes quite a bit of shuffling to go there. They're also not the most polished kind (except for Roundcube which looks nice).


TL;DR: Gf has her own domain with 2-3 e-mails set up there, and currently fetches those through her Gmail account. Is there a way to get rid of the Gmail while having dedicated access to her domain e-mails on multiple devices?

Set up the emails with her domain name with Google Business. Same gmail interface and hosting, but her domain name.

That'd mean she would have to re-create her e-mails... sort of. even tho she could probably use her current e-mail adresses.

Besides she already has her own e-mail hosting. If possible I'd like to keep it that way. But it seems like Gmail is the only easy way to use e-mails across different devices nowadays...

The Host should have IMAP server information available. Depending on how it's setup will determine if the the sent folders are sync'd across accounts. That's not a common feature though.

I have IMAP available for incoming.

Also in the e-mail configuration page I have this note:
Quote:
Notes:
  • IMAP email access coordinates between the server and your mail application. Messages that have been read/deleted/replied to will show up as such, both on the server and in the mail application.
  • POP3 does not coordinate with the server. Messages marked as read/deleted/replied to in the mail application will not show up as such on the server. This means that future mail downloads with POP3 will show all messages as unread.
  • Outgoing mail is sent using SMTP.
  • We recommend using POP3 over SSL/TLS or IMAP over SSL/TLS since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server.
Judging from this, could I set up email software on computers and devices using IMAP protocols, so everything would be sync'ed together?

It seems like Android natively supports IMAP for mails.


I think IMAP might just be what I was looking for....

IMAP is great if it works for your needs, depending on the platforms and multiple devices there can be issues. I had both gmail and hosted exchange and it took forever to sync mail, my primary issues stemed when deleting or moving items to/from folders on different devices or clients. My mail client of choice is Outlook because of work so I ended up migrating to an Office365 small business subscription.

It is a shared exchange hosting and allowed a much more fluid syncing across all my devices and clients, I haven't looked back since. It costs 6$/mo per user (5$ if you pay a year at a time) and you can input multiple aliases with your domain, I recommend taking a look or seeing if your hosting company offers an exchange option if the IMAP doesn't work out for you.
