In case emails are a key part of your online correspondence with business associates or relatives, you might be better off using an email address with your own personal domain name and an email service provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that involves limitations as to the size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any software program – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to see the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the mail server. Additionally, you’ll be able to use plenty of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that in case there’s a temporary problem with your Internet access, you can still examine your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
If you buy a web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up with any email app. During the process, you can opt for POP3 or IMAP as we offer support for the two email delivery protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the email server. With our company, you can even set up an email account on your mobile phone regardless of its Operating System and we’ve included elaborate tutorials on how to do that. To save yourself some time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an account in Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook automatically. With our shared hosting plans, you can select a desired device and software application to view your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them on your PC or to leave them on the server and to access them from different devices. The latter option will also enable different people to check the exact same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate web site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email app of your choice – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not have to configure any settings manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just follow our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even easier, our how-to articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our VPS web hosting plans regardless of the plan or the Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS includes its own pre-installed email server, so you’ll be able to create as many email addresses as you like, to send and to receive an unlimited number of email messages and to employ your favorite email software program and even a smartphone. In case you have selected cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will have access to auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your personal computer. With our packages, you will exert total authority over your e-communication regardless of where you are or what handheld or desktop device you’re using.
