There’re lots of web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email account with your own domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t experience such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your emails, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
If you get a hosting plan from us, you will be able to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up with any email software app. During the process, you can choose IMAP or POP3 as we support both email protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will stay on the server. With us, you can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone irrespective of its OS and we have detailed tutorials on how to carry out that. To save time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an account in Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail automatically. With our shared hosting plans, you can pick a desired device and application to view your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages support the two email retrieval protocols, so you can select either one of them when you set up a mailbox with an email software program. You can also download auto-configuration files for any email account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your server. Thus, you can add any account to Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without doing anything manually. In case you’re non-stop on the move and you would like to access your email messages using a mobile phone, we have included elaborate tutorials with screen-caps teaching how to configure an email account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our services, you can download the messages onto a single device or you can keep them on the server, so as to be able to access your messages from multiple locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS hosting plans feature a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software application as soon as your Virtual Private Server is completely functional. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you won’t have to install anything manually. If your VPS comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will save you time and effort when you have to set up an account in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send as many email messages as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outgoing emails. With our plans, you will be able to receive/send messages from any location and any device. You can create an email account even on your mobile phone.
