There are many web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your very own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t have such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
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 in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to use based on your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may choose to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to save the emails on the email server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your mobile phone to access your email messages and we’ve included an in-depth tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them on your personal computer or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also permit different people to check the same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a corporate website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an email client of your choosing – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to modify any settings manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just examine our comprehensive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even simpler, the help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
Both email protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our VPS hosting services irrespective of the package or the hosting Control Panel that you select. Each VPS includes a pre-installed email server, so you’ll be able to create as many email addresses as you wish, to receive and to send unlimited email messages and to use your chosen email software application and even a mobile phone. In case you’ve selected cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll be bestowed with access to auto-config files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your PC. With us, you’ll have complete command over your electronic correspondence irrespective of where you are or what handheld or desktop device you’re using.
