There’re plenty of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having an email account with your very own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you will not have such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to check your emails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two 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 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 Shared Hosting
If you purchase a Linux shared package from us, you will be able to create email accounts with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up with any email software application. During the setup procedure, you can select POP3 or IMAP as we support both email delivery protocols, so it will be up to you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the email server. With us, you can even set up an email account on your phone regardless of its Operating System and we’ve added detailed tutorials on how to do that. To save some time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an email account in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird automatically. With our shared hosting plans, you can select a preferred device and app to access your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to save them to your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow different people to use the same email account – in case you’re hosting a corporate website 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 permit you to automatically set up everything in a software program of your preference – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not need to fine-tune any settings manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just see our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything even easier, the educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
With our virtual private server plans, you’ll be able to create unlimited mailboxes and to use them with any email app on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured mail server that supports both email protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all VPS packages no matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick during the signup procedure. With cPanel and Hepsia, you will be even able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you create your mailboxes in Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without the need to enter or modify any system info and any settings manually. You can make use of any other email software app to send and receive emails too. You can even use your smartphone to access your electronic correspondence when you’re travelling.
