There are a lot of web-based mail service providers that you can use, but using a mailbox with your own domain name will provide you with more credibility if you have 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. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to access your mailboxes, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. 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 at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

Each and every web hosting package that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of depending on your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to leave the emails on the mail server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email app – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even use your smartphone to get your email messages and we have a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to store them on your home computer or to keep them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also enable multiple people to access the same mailbox – if you are hosting a company web site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an app of your choosing – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not need to fine-tune any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just read our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything easier, the help articles include step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
