There’re lots of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your own personal domain will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account 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 email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on 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 Hosting

Each hosting plan that we offer will permit 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 POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use according to your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may choose to download all emails if you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the email server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software application – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even use your smartphone to view 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 Servers

You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to save them to your home computer or to keep them on the server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable multiple individuals to access the exact same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an app of your preference – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to fine-tune any settings manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply examine our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, our how-to articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
