There are plenty of web-based mail service providers that you can use, but having an email with your own domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations 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 retrieval protocols, you won’t come across such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to access your emails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account 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 email 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

You’ll be able to use any email client and any device to examine your email messages if you order any of our shared hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your interests – you can download all email messages onto your home computer or you can store the messages on the mail server if you’ve got a company and a number of people need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll just need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. If you’d like to use your smartphone, we have included elaborate tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to store them on your home computer or to leave them on the server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also permit multiple individuals to use the very same mailbox – in case you are hosting a company site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in an email program of your choice – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not have to fine-tune any settings manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just read our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything even simpler, our educational articles include step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server through us, you’ll be able to create unlimited mailboxes with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software app. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you will choose during the VPS order procedure, since we will set up POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS in all cases. You’ll be able to choose either option and, to make everything even simpler, you will be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail – if you get the VPS with cPanel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up mailboxes on any device without any restrictions, even on your phone – if you travel a lot and you’d like to keep in contact with buddies and colleagues. With our services, you can decide whether to download the emails or to keep them on the email server based on what you’ll use the mailboxes for and on how many persons will need to get access to them.
