There are lots of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your own domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you will not have such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the 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 Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to access your emails if you choose one of our Linux website hosting packages. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that meets your interests – you can download all emails on your home computer or you can leave the emails on the server in case you are running a firm and different people need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will simply need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you’d rather use your phone, we’ve added detailed tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans support the two email delivery protocols, so you can choose either of them when you set up a mailbox with an email software app. You can also download auto-configuration files for any mailbox that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. In this way, you can add any email account to Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without doing anything manually. If you’re on the move all the time and you would like to view your emails using a smartphone, we have added exhaustive tutorials with screen-caps explaining how to create a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our services, you can download the messages onto a single device or you can keep them on the email server, so as to be able to view your messages from multiple locations and devices.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

If you order a virtual private server from us, you will be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts with any domain hosted on the server and to set them up with any email client. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ll pick during the signup process, as we’ll install POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS in any event. You’ll be able to choose either option and, to make things even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird – if you get the server with cPanel or with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. You can configure mailboxes on any device without any restrictions, even on your phone – if you travel a lot and you’d like to be in touch with friends and colleagues. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can decide whether to download the email messages or to store them on the server based on what you will use the accounts for and on how many individuals will need to gain access to them.
