There’re numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email address with your 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 services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to check your mailboxes, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on 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 buy a Linux shared package through our company, you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up with any email application. During the setup procedure, you can pick IMAP or POP3 as we offer support for the two email protocols, so it will be up to you if all email messages will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will stay on the email server. With us, you can even set up an email account on your phone irrespective of its OS and we’ve included comprehensive tutorials on how to carry out that. To spare some time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an account in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail automatically. With our hosting plans, you can choose a preferred device and app to examine your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 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 messages – to save them to your home computer or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The latter option will also enable different individuals to use the exact same email account – if you’re hosting a company site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an application of your choosing – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to tweak any settings manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply follow our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even easier, the how-to articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
Both email retrieval protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are offered with our Linux VPS packages irrespective of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you pick. Each VPS comes with a pre-configured mail server, so you’ll be able to create as many email accounts as you want, to receive and to send unlimited emails and to employ your chosen email software app and even a smartphone. In case you have chosen cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel upon signup, you’ll be supplied with access to auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these apps on your computer. With our VPS packages, you will have complete control over your e-correspondence irrespective of where you are or what desktop or mobile device you are using.
