In case email messages are a vital part of your correspondence with business partners or family members, it might be better to use a mailbox with your own domain name and an email service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, rather than using a web-based service that involves limitations with regard to the size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to check your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any app – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to check the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the email server. What’s more, you will be able to make use of many other handy options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there’s a brief predicament with your Internet access, you can still check your emails since they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
Each and every web hosting package that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to rely on according to your preferences and the purpose of your account – you may decide to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to store the emails on the email server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email client – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even use your smartphone to view your email messages and we have added an in-depth tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting packages give you complete independence in terms of where and how you can use any email account that you set up through our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Since we offer support for both IMAP and POP3, you will be able to set up a mailbox on any mobile or desktop device regardless of the Operating System in use – a desktop PC, a portable PC or a phone. You can even download our auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail and have a brand new email account automatically set up with your chosen application. You’ll not have to do anything manually. Our detailed tutorials with step-by-step screenshots will teach you how to create an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With all these devices, you can decide if the emails should be downloaded or if they should stay on the server. If you pick the latter option, you will be able to view your messages from multiple locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
Our VPS packages come with 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 program as soon as your VPS is assembled. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to configure anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will spare you time and effort if you have to set up an account in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send out as many email messages as you wish – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing emails. With our plans, you will be able to send/receive messages from any location and any device. You can configure an email account even on your smartphone.
