There’re lots of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you won’t have such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your emails, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. 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 server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each and every cloud hosting package that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of depending on your preferences and the purpose of your account – you may want to download all emails in case you’ve got a personal account and to keep the messages on the mail server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is included in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up an email account with an email software app – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even use your phone to access your emails and we have included a detailed tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans support both email delivery protocols, so you can choose either one of them when you set up an account with an email app. You can also download auto-config files for any account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the semi-dedicated server. In this way, you can add any email account to Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without having to do anything manually. If you are on the move all the time and you would like to view your emails using a smartphone, we have included in-depth tutorials with screen-caps explaining how to configure a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our semi-dedicated server packages, you can download the emails on one single device or you can store them on the server, so as to be able to examine your emails from multiple devices and locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
With our virtual private server plans, you’ll be able to set up unlimited email accounts and to use them with any email software application on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-installed email server that offers support for both protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all VPS plans no matter which Control Panel you will pick during the signup process. With cPanel and Hepsia, you’ll be even able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you create your email accounts in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without entering or changing any system information or any settings manually. You can use any other email program to send and receive emails as well. You can even use your smartphone to access your electronic correspondence when you are on the road.
