There’re a lot of web-based mail service providers that you can use, but using a mailbox with your own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you will not bump into such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to access your email messages, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your mobile 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, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to access your emails if you purchase one of our hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that suits your requirements – you can download all emails to your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the mail server if you are running a firm and different employees need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will simply need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your phone, we have included comprehensive tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to store them on your PC or to keep them on the email server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also allow multiple individuals to check the very same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in an email software program of your preference – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not need to configure anything manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just read our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things simpler, the educational articles contain step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email application as soon as your VPS is fully operational. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not need to set up anything manually. If your server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will save you time and effort when you need to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send as many emails 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 receive and send email messages from any location and any device. You can configure a mailbox even on your phone.
