There’re many web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you will not encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your mails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account 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, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, 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

You will be able to use any email client and any device to view your emails if you opt for any of our shared hosting plans. Our mail servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that suits your requirements – you can download all emails to your personal computer or you can keep the messages on the email server in case you’ve got a firm and a number of people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you’d like to use your phone, we’ve included detailed tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-based device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to store them on your personal computer or to keep them on the email server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also enable different individuals to access the exact same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a company site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in an email software app of your preference – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not have to configure anything manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply see our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even simpler, the instructional articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

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 program on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-configured email server that offers support for both email retrieval protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all VPS packages no matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick during the order process. With Hepsia and cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you set up your email accounts in Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without entering or modifying any system information and 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 email correspondence when you are travelling.
