There are many web-based mail service providers that you can use, but having an email address with your own domain will give you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you won’t come across such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to access your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, 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 software and any desktop or handheld device to check your emails if you opt for one of our shared hosting. Our email servers support both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your demands – you can download all emails onto your personal computer or you can keep the messages on the server if you are running a company and different employees need access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will simply have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you wish to use your phone, we have included in-depth tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for both email delivery protocols, so you can pick either of them when you set up a mailbox with an email software app. You can also download auto-config files for any account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the server. In this way, you can add any account to Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without having to do anything manually. In case you are on the move all the time and you would like to check your emails using a smartphone, we’ve included comprehensive tutorials with screenshots illustrating how to configure an email account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the email messages to one single device or you can store them on the server, so as to be able to access your emails from multiple devices and locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers include a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software app as soon as your Virtual Private Server is assembled. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not have to install anything manually. If your server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will spare you time and energy when you have to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You will also be able to send as many email messages as you wish – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing messages. With our plans, you’ll be able to send and receive messages from any location and any device. You can configure a mailbox even on your mobile phone.
