There are lots of web-based email providers that you can use, but using a mailbox with your own domain will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you will not come across such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to access your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account 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 mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to view your emails if you purchase one of our Linux shared web hosting. Our email servers support both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that answers your needs – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can store the messages on the server if you are running a firm and different employees need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you’d like to use your smartphone, we have included elaborate tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to download them to your personal computer or to keep them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also permit multiple people to check the exact same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an email software program of your choice – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not need to modify any settings manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just examine our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even simpler, our educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting

With our virtual private server packages, you’ll be able to create unlimited email addresses and to use them with any email app on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured email server that supports both protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all VPS packages no matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose during the signup process. With cPanel and Hepsia, you will be even able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you configure your email accounts in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird without the need to enter or change any system info or any settings manually. You can use any other email app to send and receive emails as well. You can even use your phone to access your e-correspondence when you are on the road.
