There’re numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email address with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you won’t come across such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your computer to access your mails, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two email 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 save a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
If you order a Linux web hosting package through us, you’ll be able to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up with any email software application. During the setup process, you can opt for IMAP or POP3 as we support both email retrieval protocols, so it will be up to you if all email messages will be downloaded at your end or if they will remain on the mail server. With our company, you can even set up a mailbox on your phone regardless of its Operating System and we’ve included detailed tutorials on how to perform that. To spare some time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an email account in Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird automatically. With our services, you can pick a preferred device and software application to examine your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to save them to your personal computer or to keep them on the email server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also permit multiple people to access the same email account – if you are hosting a corporate website on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an application of your choice – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you won’t have to configure anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply check our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, our instructional articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
If you get a virtual private server through us, you will be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software program. This is valid irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you will opt for during the signup process, since we will install IMAP and POP3 email servers on the VPS in all cases. You’ll be able to pick either option and, to make everything even simpler, you will be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail – if you get the VPS with cPanel or with our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can configure mailboxes on any device without any limits, even on your smartphone – if you commute a lot and you would like to keep in touch with buddies and associates. With our services, you can select whether to download the email messages or to save them on the server based on what you will use the mailboxes for and on how many people will need to have access to them.
