There are many web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using an email with your own personal domain will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you will not encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to check your mailboxes, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. 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 at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to use any email client software and any handheld or desktop device to view your email messages if you order any of our shared hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that matches your interests – you can download all emails on your home computer or you can keep the messages on the email server in case you’ve got a firm and different employees need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a given email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You will just have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. If you’d rather use your smartphone, we’ve included elaborate tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers give you full autonomy in regard to where and how you can use any email address that you create via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Since we support both POP3 and IMAP, you will be able to set up an email account on any device irrespective of the OS in use – a desktop computer, a portable PC or a smartphone. You can even download our auto-config files for Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird and have a brand-new mailbox automatically set up with your preferred email software app. You will not have to do anything manually. Our detailed tutorials with step-by-step screenshots will teach you how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With all these devices, you can decide if the emails should be downloaded or if they should remain on the email server. If you choose the latter option, you will be able to check your emails from different locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server through us, you will be able to create an unlimited number of mailboxes with any domain hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software application. This is valid regardless of the Control Panel that you will opt for during the VPS order procedure, since we will set up POP3 and IMAP mail servers on the VPS anyhow. You’ll be able to choose either option and, to make everything even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird – if you order the server with cPanel or with our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up email accounts on any device without any restrictions, even on your smartphone – if you commute a lot and you would like to be in touch with buddies and colleagues. With us, you can select whether to download the email messages or to leave them on the email server based on what you’ll use the accounts for and on how many people will need to have access to them.
