There’re a lot of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your own domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you will not have such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to access your email messages, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account 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 on your personal 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 Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any device to check your emails if you select any of our cloud website hosting plans. Our email servers support both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that suits your requirements – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can leave the emails on the server if you have a firm and different employees need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You will simply have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d rather use your phone, we have detailed tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers give you complete independence in terms of where and how you can use any email account that you set up via our Hepsia Control Panel. As we offer support for both POP3 and IMAP, you will be able to configure a mailbox on any mobile or desktop device regardless of the OS in use – a desktop PC, a portable computer or a phone. You can download even our auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook and have a new email account automatically set up with your preferred email client. You’ll not have to do anything manually. Our detailed tutorials with step-by-step screenshots will show you how to set up an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With all these devices, you can decide whether the email messages should be downloaded or if they should stay on the email server. If you select the latter option, you will be able to access your email messages from multiple locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both email protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are offered with our Linux VPS plans regardless of the package or the hosting Control Panel that you pick. Each VPS comes with its own pre-installed mail server, so you will be able to create as many email addresses as you like, to receive and to send unlimited messages and to use your preferred email software app and even a smartphone. If you’ve selected cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel upon signup, you’ll be given access to auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these applications on your PC. With our VPS plans, you’ll have full authority over your e-communication irrespective of where you are or what mobile or desktop device you’re using.
