There are numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email account with your very own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your emails, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the 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 Website Hosting

Each and every website hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to make use of in accordance with your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may decide to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the email server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is part of our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email client – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can use even your phone to view your email messages and we have an elaborate tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to download them onto your personal computer or to keep them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also allow different individuals to check the very same mailbox – if you are hosting a company website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email software application of your choosing – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to configure any settings manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just see our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android.
