There are a lot of web-based mail service providers that you can use, but using a mailbox 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 limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not run into such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to check your email accounts, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
If you get a shared website hosting from our company, you will be able to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up with any email app. During the setup procedure, you can pick IMAP or POP3 as we offer support for the two email protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will stay on the server. With our company, you can even set up an email account on your smartphone irrespective of its Operating System and we have included comprehensive tutorials on how to do that. To spare yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an email account in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail automatically. With our hosting plans, you can pick a preferred device and application to access your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them onto your home computer or to keep them on the server and to check them from different devices. The latter option will also enable multiple people to access the very same mailbox – if you are hosting a company web site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an email software application of your choice – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not have to fine-tune any settings manually. If you have a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply examine our detailed tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything simpler, the how-to articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
If you order a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software app. This is valid irrespective of the Control Panel that you will choose during the signup procedure, as we will install POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS anyhow. You’ll be able to select either option and, to make everything even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail – if you get the server with cPanel or with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You can configure email accounts on any device without any restrictions, even on your phone – if you commute a lot and you want to remain in touch with mates and colleagues. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can select whether to download the email messages or to keep them on the mail server depending on what you’ll use the accounts for and on how many persons will need to gain access to them.
