There’re a lot of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t face such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to access your mailboxes, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
With a cloud service from us, you’ll be able to use any device and any email application to check your emails. We offer support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, so you can opt for either one of them when you configure a mailbox in accordance with your individual preferences. To make things simpler, you can download a small-sized file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you set up. You can effortlessly set up the latter with your preferred app by simply running that file on your computer. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two email services are synchronized, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the particular email account is configured.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them onto your personal computer or to leave them on the server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also enable different people to check the same email account – if you’re hosting a company web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in a program of your choosing – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not need to configure any settings manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just check our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even easier, the help articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
With our virtual private server packages, you’ll be able to set up unlimited mailboxes and to use them with any email program on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-installed email server that offers support for both protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all packages no matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose during the signup process. With Hepsia and cPanel, you’ll be even able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you configure your mailboxes in Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without entering or changing any system information and any settings manually. You can use any other email software app to receive and send emails too. You can even use your mobile phone to check your electronic correspondence when you are on the road.
