There are a lot of web-based email service providers that you can use, but using an email with your very own personal domain will give you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t experience such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to check your emails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to view your email messages if you purchase one of our cloud website hosting service. Our email servers support both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all emails to your personal computer or you can store the emails on the email server if you are running a company and different employees need access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll only need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you’d like to use your smartphone, we have exhaustive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them onto your home computer or to leave them on the email server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also permit different people to check the same email account – in case you are hosting a company web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an email program of your preference – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not need to fine-tune any settings manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just see our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even simpler, the how-to articles include step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

With our VPS server plans, you will be able to create unlimited email accounts and to use them with any email software app on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-installed email server that offers support for both email delivery protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all packages regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick during the signup process. With Hepsia and cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you configure your mailboxes in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without entering or modifying any system info or any settings manually. You can make use of any other email client software to receive and send emails as well. You can even use your phone to check your electronic correspondence when you’re on the move.
