There’re lots of web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email with your very own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to check your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Each and every shared website hosting package that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to make use of in accordance with your preference and the purpose of your account – you may decide to download all emails in case you’ve got a personal account and to store the messages on the server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia hosting 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 program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your smartphone to view your email messages and we have added a comprehensive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans offer support for the two email retrieval protocols, so you can opt for either of them when you set up an account with an email software application. You can also download auto-config files for any email account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any account to Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird without the need to do anything manually. If you are on the move all the time and you’d like to access your emails using a smartphone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials with screen-caps demonstrating how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our services, you can download the email messages on one single device or you can store them on the server, so as to be able to access your email messages from different locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
With our VPS server plans, you will be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts and to use them with any email software app on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-installed mail server that supports both email retrieval protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all packages irrespective of which Control Panel you will choose during the signup procedure. With Hepsia and cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you create your email accounts in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without having to enter or change any system information or any settings manually. You can use any other email app to receive and send emails too. You can even use your smartphone to access your electronic correspondence when you are on the road.
