There’re plenty of web-based mail service providers that you can use, but having an email with your very own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, for instance, 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 offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not run into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to access your email messages, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. 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 computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Each and every cloud hosting package that we offer will allow 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 email protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to use depending on your preference and the purpose of the account – you may decide to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to leave the emails on the email server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email client – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can use even your mobile phone to get your emails and we’ve included a comprehensive tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both, so you can decide 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 different devices. The latter option will also permit multiple people to use the very same mailbox – in case you are hosting a corporate site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in a software app of your choice – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t need to tweak anything manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just check out our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even easier, our help articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

Our Linux VPS include a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email app as soon as your Virtual Private Server is completely operational. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you won’t need to install anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will save you time and effort if you need to set up an account in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which handles the outgoing emails. With our VPS plans, you’ll be able to send/receive email messages from any location and any device. You can configure an email account even on your phone.
