There are many web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email account with your own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your mailboxes, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. 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, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto 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 Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to examine your emails if you purchase any of our cloud hosting packages. Our mail servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that meets your requirements – you can download all email messages onto your home computer or you can leave the messages on the server in case you have a firm and different people need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You’ll simply need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you would like to use your smartphone, we have included in-depth tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them to your personal computer or to leave them on the email server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also allow multiple people to use the exact same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate web site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in an email software application of your preference – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you will not have to tweak any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply check our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even simpler, our educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create an email account and set it up in an email program as soon as your Virtual Private Server is fully operational. We support both IMAP and POP3 connections by default, so you won’t need to configure 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 Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will save you time and energy when you have to set up a mailbox in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send out as many email messages as you want – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which handles the outbound emails. With our packages, you’ll be able to receive and send messages from any location and any device. You can create an email account even on your phone.
