There’re lots of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you won’t run into such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to check your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. 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 at your end, but remains on the mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, 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 Website Hosting
With a Linux shared website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to use any device and any email software app to see your emails. We offer support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, so you can pick either one when you set up an email account according to your individual preference. To make things simpler, you can download a small-sized file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you set up. You can quickly set up the latter with your chosen app by simply running that file on your computer. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two services are synchronized, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the particular mailbox is set up.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them to your PC or to leave them on the email server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also allow different individuals to access the very same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in an email program of your choosing – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not have to fine-tune anything manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just check out our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything simpler, the educational articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
With our VPS server packages, you will be able to create unlimited mailboxes and to use them with any email client software on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-installed mail server that offers support for both email delivery protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all VPS plans regardless of which Control Panel you’ll select during the signup process. With cPanel and Hepsia, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you configure your mailboxes in Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without entering or modifying any system information and any settings manually. You can use any other email software application to receive and send email messages as well. You can even use your phone to access your electronic correspondence when you’re travelling.
