There are many web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you won’t bump into such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your mails, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. 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, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or handheld device to check your emails if you opt for any of our cloud plans. Our mail servers offer support for both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that suits your needs – you can download all email messages on your personal computer or you can store the emails on the mail server in case you’ve got a firm and different employees need to access 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 – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will simply need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. If you would rather use your phone, we have added comprehensive tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages support both email retrieval protocols, so you can select either one when you set up an account with an email software application. You can also download auto-configuration files for any email account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage your server. In this way, you can add any account to Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without needing to do anything manually. If you’re on the move all the time and you would like to check your email messages using a smartphone, we have included detailed tutorials with screenshots illustrating how to set up a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the emails on one single device or you can keep them on the server, so as to be able to examine your email messages from multiple locations and devices.
