There’re plenty of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you won’t have such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to check your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
With a Linux shared hosting package from our company, you will be able to use any device and any email application to view your email messages. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, so you can pick either one when you set up a mailbox in accordance with your individual preferences. To make things easier, you can download a small file from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for each mailbox that you create. You can effortlessly set up the latter with your desired application by simply running that file on your computer. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two services are synchronized, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the particular email account is set up.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server package with our company, you’ll be able to check your emails from any device with ease. In case you are non-stop on the move, you can examine our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android phones, and if you use a notebook or a desktop PC, you can download our auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird and set up a mailbox with your desired email app without the need to do anything manually. Since we offer support for both IMAP and POP3, you can select the email retrieval protocol that satisfies your needs best – you may want to download personal emails at your end, whereas if you use our services for commercial purposes, you should choose IMAP, so as to allow plenty of people to check a certain mailbox from different locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages feature a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email software application as soon as your server is completely operational. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to install anything manually. If your VPS comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will save you time and effort if you have to set up a mailbox in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send as many email messages as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing messages. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will be able to receive/send email messages from any location and any device. You can create a mailbox even on your smartphone.
