There’re plenty of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your own domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email 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 offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you will not run into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your mailboxes, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox 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 email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to view your email messages if you choose one of our Linux website hosting packages. Our email servers support both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that meets your requirements – you can download all email messages onto your personal computer or you can leave the emails on the email server if you are running a company and different employees need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You will only need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. If you prefer to use your smartphone, we have added elaborate tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to store them on your home computer or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The latter option will also enable multiple individuals to access the same email account – in case you’re hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in an email program of your choosing – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to tweak anything manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply examine our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even easier, the instructional articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting

Both email delivery protocols, IMAP and POP3, are available with our Linux VPS hosting packages regardless of the plan or the Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS includes its own pre-configured email server, so you’ll be able to create as many email accounts as you like, to send and to receive unlimited emails and to use your chosen email software program and even a mobile phone. In case you have chosen our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or cPanel during the signup process, you’ll get access to auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these applications on your computer. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you’ll have absolute authority over your e-correspondence no matter where you are or what desktop or mobile device you are using.
