There’re lots of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your own domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t come across such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your email messages, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Each cloud hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain 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 offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use based on 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 save the messages on the mail server – if you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email program – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even use your phone to check your emails and we have included a detailed 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 select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to save them to your personal computer or to leave them on the email server and to check them from multiple devices. The latter option will also enable multiple people to use the exact same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an email program of your choosing – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to tweak any settings manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just check out our detailed tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything easier, the instructional articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

With our virtual private server packages, you’ll be able to set up unlimited email accounts and to use them with any email software app on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-installed email server that supports both email retrieval protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all plans no matter which Control Panel you’ll select during the signup procedure. With Hepsia and cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you create your mailboxes in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without needing to enter or modify any system info 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 smartphone to view your electronic correspondence when you’re on the road.
