There’re a lot of web-based email service 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 example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to access your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

Each and every website hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to rely on in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to leave the emails on the server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software app – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can use even your phone to get your email messages and we have an elaborate tutorial on how to carry out 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 protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to store them on your PC or to leave them on the email server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also enable different individuals to check the exact same email account – in case you are hosting a corporate web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in a software program of your preference – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not need to configure any settings manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just examine our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even simpler, the how-to articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers include a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email software application as soon as your VPS is fully operational. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not need to set up anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will save you time and effort if you need to set up an account in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send out as many emails as you wish – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing messages. With our VPS packages, you’ll be able to send/receive email messages from any location and any device. You can set up a mailbox even on your smartphone.
