There’re plenty of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having a mailbox with your own domain will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not have such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your email messages, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to access your emails if you opt for any of our website hosting. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that answers your demands – you can download all emails to your PC or you can store the emails on the email server if you are running a firm and different employees need access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you’d like to use your phone, we’ve included in-depth tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to store them on your personal computer or to keep them on the email server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also permit different people to use the very same email account – if you’re hosting a company web site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in an email program of your preference – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not have to modify anything manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – just examine our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything easier, the instructional articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS servers feature a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email application as soon as your Virtual Private Server is fully functional. We support both IMAP and POP3 connections by default, so you will not have to set up anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will spare you time and energy if you have to set up a mailbox in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send out as many messages as you like – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which handles the outbound emails. With our plans, you will be able to receive and send email messages from any location and any device. You can create a mailbox even on your mobile phone.
