There are plenty of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your own domain name will give you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not bump into such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to check your email accounts, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile device. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any handheld or desktop device to view your email messages if you purchase any of our Linux web hosting. Our email servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that fits your needs – you can download all email messages to your personal computer or you can store the emails on the email server if you’ve got a company and different people need access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a given email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will only need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you’d rather use your phone, we have elaborate tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-based mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for both email delivery protocols, so you can choose either of them when you set up an email account with an email software program. You can also download auto-config files for any account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any account to Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird without the need to do anything manually. In case you are non-stop on the move and you would like to view your emails using a smartphone, we’ve added exhaustive tutorials with screen-caps teaching how to set up a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our services, you can download the messages to a single device or you can keep them on the email server, so as to be able to check your emails from different devices and locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
With our VPS server packages, you will be able to set up unlimited email addresses and to use them with any email client on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured email server that supports both email protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all Virtual Private Server packages no matter which Control Panel you will pick during the order process. With cPanel and Hepsia, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you set up your email accounts in Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without needing to enter or change any system info and any settings manually. You can make use of any other email app to receive and send email messages too. You can even use your mobile phone to access your e-correspondence when you are on the move.
