There are numerous web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your own domain will grant you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not experience such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to check your mails, 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, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on 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’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to access your emails if you get one of our Linux shared hosting. Our mail servers support both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that meets your demands – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can keep the messages on the mail server in case you have a firm and a number of people need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will simply have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you would rather use your smartphone, we have included elaborate tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers give you absolute freedom in regard to where and how you can use any email address that you create via our Hepsia Control Panel. As we support both POP3 and IMAP, you’ll be able to configure a mailbox on any desktop or mobile device regardless of the Operating System in use – a desktop PC, a portable PC or a mobile phone. You can download even our auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook and have a brand new email account set up automatically with your chosen email software application. You will not have to do anything manually. Our elaborate tutorials with step-by-step screenshots will demonstrate to you how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With any of these devices, you can choose whether the emails should be downloaded or if they should stay on the mail server. If you select the latter option, you’ll be able to view your messages from different locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers feature a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software program as soon as your VPS is fully functional. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not need to install anything manually. If your VPS comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will save you time and effort if you need to set up an account in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send as many emails as you want – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outbound messages. With our VPS plans, you will be able to receive and send email messages from any location and any device. You can set up a mailbox even on your smartphone.
