There’re many web-based email providers that you can use, but using a mailbox with your own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not face such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to check your email messages, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

Each and every website hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of based on your preferences and the purpose of the account – you may want to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to keep the messages on the mail server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-config file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email client – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your phone to examine your emails and we have an elaborate tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them on your PC or to keep them on the mail server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also permit multiple people to check the same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a company site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an app of your preference – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not need to fine-tune any settings manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply check out our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things simpler, the help articles include step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both email delivery protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our VPS servers irrespective of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS comes with its own pre-configured mail server, so you will be able to create as many mailboxes as you wish, to send and to receive an unlimited number of email messages and to employ your desired email software application and even a smartphone. If you have selected our Hepsia Control Panel or cPanel during the signup procedure, you’ll get access to auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your computer. With our VPS plans, you’ll exert complete authority over your electronic communication regardless of where you are or what handheld or desktop device you’re using.
