There are a lot of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not stumble upon such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to check your mails, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may want to download all emails in case you’ve got a personal account and to keep the emails on the mail server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software app – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even use your smartphone to view your emails and we’ve added a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform 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 retrieval protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to save them to your PC or to leave them on the email server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow multiple individuals to access the exact same email account – in case you’re hosting a company 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 allow you to automatically set up everything in an email software app of your choosing – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not have to fine-tune anything manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just read our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things simpler, our educational articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers come with a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain name, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software program as soon as your server is completely operational. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not need to set up anything manually. If your VPS comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will spare you time and effort when you need to set up an account in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send as many emails as you like – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outbound emails. With our VPS plans, you’ll be able to send and receive emails from any location and any device. You can set up a mailbox even on your mobile phone.
