There’re plenty of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your very own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have a business, 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 offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you will not have such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your email messages, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. 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 at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas 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 Website Hosting
If you order a Linux website hosting service from us, you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up with any email software app. During the setup process, you can opt for POP3 or IMAP as we support the two email retrieval protocols, so it will be up to you if all email messages will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the mail server. With us, you can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone regardless of its OS and we have included detailed tutorials on how to carry out that. To save some time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an email account in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird automatically. With our hosting plans, you can pick a desired device and app to access your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to save them to your PC or to keep them on the email server and to view them from different devices. The second option will also allow multiple people to check the exact same email account – in case you’re hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in an email app of your preference – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not need to modify anything manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply check out our comprehensive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything easier, the how-to articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server from us, you will be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software program. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ll select during the signup procedure, since we will install POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS in any case. You’ll be able to select either option and, to make things even simpler, you’ll be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird – if you order the server with cPanel or with our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You can create mailboxes on any device without any limits, even on your phone – if you commute a lot and you wish to remain in touch with mates and partners. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can decide whether to download the emails or to save them on the mail server based on what you’ll use the accounts for and on how many individuals will need to have access to them.
