If you have an email account with your own domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email app such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to access and administer your email messages. The benefit of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to keep a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and check the messages from any location. You’ll also be able to access old email messages in case there is an issue with your Internet connection, which is an advantage over a web-based service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
If you buy a shared website hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up with any email app. During the setup procedure, you can select IMAP or POP3 as we support the two email delivery protocols, so it will be up to you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the mail server. With our company, you can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone regardless of its Operating System and we have included detailed tutorials on how to do that. To save yourself some time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an email account in Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook automatically. With our shared hosting plans, you can pick a preferred device and software application to check your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for the two email delivery protocols, so you can choose either one of them when you set up a mailbox with an email client. You can also download auto-config files for any mailbox that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any account to Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without having to do anything manually. If you are on the move all the time and you would like to check your email messages using a smartphone, we have added elaborate tutorials with screenshots explaining how to create a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our services, you can download the messages on a single device or you can store them on the email server, so as to be able to examine your email messages from different devices and locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our VPS web hosting plans regardless of the package or the Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS comes with a pre-installed mail server, so you’ll be able to set up as many email addresses as you wish, to send and to receive an unlimited number of messages and to use your chosen email application and even a smartphone. In case you’ve selected cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel upon signup, you’ll be given access to auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your PC. With our VPS plans, you will exercise complete control over your email communication irrespective of where you are or what handheld or desktop device you’re using.
