There are plenty of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you won’t have such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to access your email messages, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. 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, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

Each hosting package that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to make use of based on your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to save the messages on the server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email client – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your smartphone to check your emails and we’ve included an exhaustive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them to your PC or to keep them on the email server and to view them from different devices. The second option will also allow multiple individuals to use the exact same email account – in case you’re hosting a corporate website 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 set up everything automatically in a software application 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 add any mailbox just as easily – just see our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, the help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both email retrieval protocols, IMAP and POP3, are offered with our VPS servers irrespective of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you select. Each VPS includes its own pre-installed email server, so you will be able to set up as many email addresses as you want, to send and to receive unlimited email messages and to use your preferred email software program and even a mobile phone. If you’ve picked our Hepsia Control Panel or cPanel upon signup, you’ll get access to auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your PC. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will exercise absolute authority over your e-communication no matter where you are or what desktop or mobile device you are using.
