In case you have an email with your very own personal domain and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email application such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to access and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to keep a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and access the messages from any location. You will also be able to see old emails if there is an issue with your Internet connection, which is an enormous advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Each shared web hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to use according to your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may choose to download all emails if you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software app – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can use even your smartphone to examine your emails and we have added an in-depth tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers give you full autonomy in regards to where and how you can use any email account that you set up via our Hepsia Control Panel. As we support both IMAP and POP3, you will be able to create an email account on any mobile or desktop device irrespective of the OS in use – a desktop computer, a notebook or a smartphone. You can even download our auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail and have a brand new mailbox automatically set up with your desired email software application. You will not need to do anything manually. Our exhaustive tutorials with step-by-step screen-caps will teach you how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With all these devices, you can decide if the emails should be downloaded or if they should remain on the mail server. If you go with the second option, you will be able to examine your messages from different locations.
