If email messages are an important component of your online correspondence with business associates or relatives, it may be better to use an email with your own domain name and an email provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based service that entails limitations with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to check your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to view the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the email server. In addition, you’ll be able to use many other useful options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a brief predicament with your Internet access, you can still view your emails since they will be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any mobile or desktop device to view your email messages if you choose any of our website hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your interests – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can leave the messages on the server in case you have a company and a number of employees need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will just need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you would rather use your smartphone, we have added exhaustive tutorials on how to create an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to save them to your personal computer or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from multiple devices. The latter option will also enable multiple individuals to use the very same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in an app of your choosing – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not have to tweak anything manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – just read our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything easier, the educational articles contain step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS hosting plans come with a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email app as soon as your VPS is completely operational. We support both IMAP and POP3 connections by default, so you will not have to set up anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will spare you time and effort if you need to set up an email account in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you wish – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outgoing messages. With our plans, you will be able to receive/send email messages from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your smartphone.
