There are a lot of web-based mail service providers that you can use, but having an email account with your own domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not have such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to check your mailboxes, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each shared hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to make use of based on your preferences and the purpose of your account – you may want to download all emails if you have a personal account and to leave the emails on the mail server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email program – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can use even your phone to view your email messages and we have a detailed tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans support both email delivery protocols, so you can opt for either of them when you set up an email account with an email client. You can also download auto-configuration files for any email account that you set up 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 Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without doing anything manually. In case you are on the move all the time and you’d like to check your emails using a smartphone, we have detailed tutorials with screenshots illustrating how to create a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the email messages on one single device or you can leave them on the email server, so as to be able to access your emails from different locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
With our VPS server plans, you will be able to set up an unlimited number of mailboxes and to use them with any email client software on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured email server that offers support for both email protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all packages no matter which Control Panel you will pick upon signup. With Hepsia and cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you create your email accounts in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without needing to enter or modify any system information or any settings manually. You can make use of any other email client software to receive and send email messages too. You can even use your phone to check your e-correspondence when you’re on the road.
