There are plenty of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having an email address with your own domain will give you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you won’t run into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, 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 Web Hosting
With a cloud web hosting service from our company, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software application to see your emails. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, so you can choose either one when you set up an email account depending on your individual preferences. To make things easier, you can download a small-sized file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you set up. You can quickly set up the latter with your chosen app by simply clicking on that file. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two services are harmonized, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any PC where the particular email account is configured.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for the two email retrieval protocols, so you can choose either one of them when you set up a mailbox with an email app. You can also download auto-configuration files for any email account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer your server. In this way, you can add any email account to Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without the need to do anything manually. If you’re on the move all the time and you’d like to view your email messages using a mobile phone, we have exhaustive tutorials with screenshots teaching how to create an email account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our services, you can download the email messages to one single device or you can store them on the email server, so as to be able to check your messages from multiple locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers feature a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create an email account and set it up in an email software app as soon as your server is ready. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to set up anything manually. If your VPS comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will save you time and energy when you have to set up an account in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you wish – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which handles the outbound messages. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you’ll be able to receive and send emails from any location and any device. You can configure a mailbox even on your smartphone.
