There are plenty of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the maximum 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 will not stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox 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, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any mobile or desktop device to access your email messages if you order one of our shared hosting. Our mail servers support both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that meets your demands – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can store the messages on the server in case you’ve got a firm and different people need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll simply have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you would like to use your phone, we have included exhaustive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans give you complete freedom in regard to how and where you can use any email address that you set up via our Hepsia Control Panel. As we support both POP3 and IMAP, you will be able to configure an email account on any mobile or desktop device regardless of the OS in use – a desktop computer, a notebook or a mobile phone. You can download even our auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird and have a brand-new email account automatically set up with your preferred software application. You’ll not have to do anything manually. Our elaborate tutorials with step-by-step screen-caps will show you how to create a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android phone. With all these devices, you can choose if the emails should be downloaded or if they should remain on the email server. If you choose the second option, you’ll be able to access your email messages from multiple locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are offered with our VPS plans irrespective of the package or the hosting Control Panel that you pick. Each VPS comes with its own pre-configured mail server, so you’ll be able to create as many mailboxes as you like, to send and to receive an unlimited number of emails and to use your desired email client software and even a smartphone. If you have selected cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the VPS order process, you’ll be granted access to auto-configuration files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these applications on your computer. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you’ll exercise complete control over your e-correspondence regardless of where you are or what device you’re using.
