There’re many web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t face such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to access your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. 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 locally at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto 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

With a Linux hosting package from our company, you will be able to use any device and any email app to access your email messages. We support the IMAP and POP3 protocols, so you can select either of them when you set up a mailbox depending on your personal preferences. To make things simpler, you can download a small configuration file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you create. You can effortlessly set up the latter with your desired application by simply running that file on your PC. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two services complement each other, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the particular email account is set up.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for the two email retrieval protocols, so you can pick either of them when you set up an email account with an email application. You can also download auto-config files for any account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any account to Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without needing to do anything manually. If you’re non-stop on the move and you would like to view your email messages using a mobile phone, we have added comprehensive tutorials with screenshots demonstrating how to create an account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our services, you can download the messages on one single device or you can keep them on the email server, so as to be able to access your messages from different devices and locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting include a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email program as soon as your VPS is fully operational. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not have to set up anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will save you time and effort when you have to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You will also be able to send as many emails as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing emails. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you’ll be able to send/receive messages from any location and any device. You can configure an email account even on your smartphone.
