There are plenty of web-based email service providers that you can use, but using an email account with your own domain name will give you more credibility if you have 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 supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you will not come across such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to access your email accounts, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile device. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to access your emails if you buy one of our Linux shared website hosting. Our email servers support both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that suits your demands – you can download all emails onto your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the server in case you’ve got a company and different employees need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll only need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you’d rather use your smartphone, we have detailed tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans give you absolute autonomy in terms of how and where you can use any email address that you set up through our Hepsia Control Panel. As we offer support for both IMAP and POP3, you will be able to create a mailbox on any desktop or handheld device irrespective of the OS in use – a desktop computer, a notebook or a smartphone. You can even download our auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook and have a brand new mailbox automatically set up with your chosen application. You will not need to do anything manually. Our exhaustive tutorials with step-by-step screen-caps will reveal to you how to set up an email account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With any of these devices, you can choose if the emails should be downloaded or if they should stay on the email server. If you pick the second option, you’ll be able to view your emails from different locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email retrieval protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our Linux VPS servers irrespective of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you select. Each VPS comes with a pre-installed mail server, so you’ll be able to set up as many email addresses as you wish, to receive and to send an unlimited number of messages and to employ your chosen email application and even a smartphone. If you’ve picked our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or cPanel during the signup procedure, you’ll gain access to auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your computer. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you’ll exercise full control over your email communication irrespective of where you are or what desktop or mobile device you are using.
