There are lots of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your very own personal domain will give you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not experience such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to access your email messages, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
Each and every hosting package that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of the account – you may want to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to keep the messages on the server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized auto-config file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software application – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can use even your smartphone to view your emails and we have included a detailed tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to download them to your home computer or to keep them on the mail server and to view them from multiple devices. The latter option will also enable multiple people to check the very same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate 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 set up everything automatically in an application of your choosing – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to configure any settings manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just read our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything simpler, our how-to articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting services include a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email application as soon as your VPS is fully operational. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to configure anything manually. If your server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will save you time and energy if you need to set up an email account in any of these applications. You will also be able to send as many emails as you wish – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing emails. With us, you will be able to receive and send messages from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your mobile phone.
