There are many web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your own personal domain will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions 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 won’t run into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to check your emails, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to check your emails if you buy any of our Linux shared web hosting services. Our email servers support both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that corresponds to your requirements – you can download all emails onto your home computer or you can keep the messages on the mail server if you’ve got a company and a number of employees need access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll only need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you’d rather use your smartphone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them on your home computer or to keep them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also permit different individuals to check the exact 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 hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an email program of your choosing – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not need to configure any settings manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just follow our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things simpler, the how-to articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

With our virtual private server plans, you’ll be able to set up unlimited email addresses and to use them with any email program on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-configured email server that supports both protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all Virtual Private Server plans regardless of which Control Panel you’ll pick during the signup procedure. With cPanel and Hepsia, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you configure your mailboxes in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without having to enter or modify any system information and any settings manually. You can make use of any other email client software to receive and send emails too. You can even use your smartphone to view your email correspondence when you’re travelling.
