There’re a lot of web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email account with your own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you will not stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your computer to access your mailboxes, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to examine your email messages if you opt for one of our shared hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that corresponds to your needs – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can store the emails on the email server in case you are running a company and different people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will only need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your phone, we’ve got elaborate tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans support the two email retrieval protocols, so you can select either of them when you set up a mailbox with an email software app. You can also download auto-config files for any email account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any email account to Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without doing anything manually. In case you’re non-stop on the move and you would like to access your emails using a smartphone, we’ve got in-depth tutorials with screen-caps explaining how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our services, you can download the email messages to a single device or you can leave them on the server, so as to be able to check your emails from multiple locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are offered with our VPS servers irrespective of the package or the Control Panel that you pick. Each VPS comes with its own pre-installed email server, so you will be able to set up as many email addresses as you wish, to receive and to send unlimited messages and to use your desired email software program and even a mobile phone. In case you have chosen our Hepsia Control Panel or cPanel during the VPS order procedure, you will have access to auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these applications on your PC. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you will exercise absolute control over your email communication irrespective of where you are or what device you’re using.
