There are many web-based mail service providers that you can use, but having an email account with your own personal domain name will grant you 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 receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you won’t have such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to check your mails, including Outlook, Apple Mail 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 onto your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to access your email messages if you choose any of our shared hosting plans. Our mail servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that suits your demands – you can download all emails on your PC or you can keep the emails on the server if you’ve got a company and different people need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll only need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. If you prefer to use your phone, we have added elaborate tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them to your home computer or to keep them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also enable multiple individuals to check the very same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate web 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 allow you to set up everything automatically in a client of your preference – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you won’t need to configure anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply read our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things simpler, the help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to create an unlimited number of mailboxes with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software program. This is valid irrespective of the Control Panel that you’ll select upon signup, since we will set up IMAP and POP3 mail servers on the VPS in all cases. You’ll be able to select either option and, to make things even easier, you will be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail – if you get the VPS with cPanel or with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. You can configure mailboxes on any device without any limits, even on your phone – if you travel a lot and you want to keep in touch with buddies and associates. With our services, you can decide whether to download the email messages or to store them on the email server based on what you will use the mailboxes for and on how many people will need access to them.
