There are plenty of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your very own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you won’t come across such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your emails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. 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 onto your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to view your email messages if you order any of our shared plans. Our email servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that matches your demands – you can download all emails to your personal computer or you can keep the messages on the server in case you are running a firm and a number of people need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve included comprehensive tutorials on how to create an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer support for both email retrieval protocols, so you can select either one of them when you set up an email account with an email software program. You can also download auto-config files for any mailbox that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage your server. In this way, you can add any email account to Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without having to do anything manually. In case you are non-stop on the move and you would like to check your emails using a mobile phone, we’ve got elaborate tutorials with screenshots demonstrating how to set up an email account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the emails to one single device or you can keep them on the server, so as to be able to view your emails from different devices and locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both email protocols, IMAP and POP3, are available with our VPS hosting plans irrespective of the package or the hosting Control Panel that you pick. Each VPS comes with its own pre-configured mail server, so you’ll be able to create as many email addresses as you wish, to receive and to send unlimited messages and to use your chosen email software program and even a smartphone. In case you’ve chosen our Hepsia Control Panel or cPanel during the order procedure, you’ll be given access to auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your computer. With our VPS packages, you will exercise total authority over your email correspondence regardless of where you are or what desktop or mobile device you’re using.
