There’re numerous web-based mail service providers that you can use, but using an email with your very own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, 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 offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery 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 Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox 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, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal computer, unless you set up 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 and any device to check your emails if you purchase one of our Linux shared hosting. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can store the emails on the mail server if you are running a company and different people need to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a particular 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 computer and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you would like to use your phone, we’ve added elaborate tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to store them on your PC or to leave them on the server and to access them from different devices. The latter option will also enable different individuals to check the same email account – if you are hosting a company site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in a software app of your choosing – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not have to fine-tune anything manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just read our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even easier, our how-to articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting feature a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create an email account and set it up in an email software program as soon as your server is completely functional. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you won’t need to configure anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will spare you time and effort when you need to set up an email account in any of these apps. 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 outgoing emails. With our VPS packages, you’ll be able to receive/send messages from any location and any device. You can configure an email account even on your phone.
