There’re numerous web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you will not stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to check your email messages, 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 mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to access your emails if you pick one of our shared hosting. Our mail servers support both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that matches your demands – you can download all email messages onto your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the server in case you’ve got a firm and different people need access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you’d rather use your phone, we have in-depth tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-powered mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We offer support for both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them to your personal computer or to leave them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also allow different people to access the very same email account – if you are hosting a corporate web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an app of your choosing – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not have to tweak any settings manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just check our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, the instructional articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers include 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. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you will not have to install anything manually. If your VPS comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will spare you time and effort when you need to set up an account in any of these applications. You will also be able to send as many emails as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which handles the outgoing emails. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you’ll be able to receive and send emails from any location and any device. You can configure a mailbox even on your phone.
