If emails are a fundamental component of your correspondence with business partners or family members, it might be better to use a mailbox with your own personal domain and an email service provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, rather than relying on a web-based email service that entails limitations in regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any software program – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to view the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the email server. On top of that, you will be able to take advantage of lots of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that in case there is a temporary predicament with your Internet connection, you can still check your emails since they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting
If you buy a website hosting from us, you will be able to create email accounts with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up with any email application. During the process, you can choose POP3 or IMAP as we support the two email protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will stay on the email server. With us, you can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone regardless of its OS and we have elaborate tutorials on how to carry out that. To spare yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an email account in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail automatically. With our services, you can pick a desired device and application to view your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to download them onto your personal computer or to leave them on the server and to view them from multiple devices. The latter option will also allow multiple people to access the very same email account – in case you’re hosting a company website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in a software program of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t need to modify any settings manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply check our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things easier, our educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email retrieval protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our Linux VPS web hosting service regardless of the plan or the Control Panel that you select. Each VPS comes with a pre-installed mail server, so you will be able to set up as many email addresses as you want, to receive and to send an unlimited number of messages and to use your chosen email client and even a smartphone. In case you have selected our Hepsia Control Panel or cPanel during the VPS order procedure, you’ll be given access to auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these applications on your computer. With our plans, you’ll have full authority over your e-correspondence no matter where you are or what desktop or mobile device you’re using.
