There are numerous web-based mail service providers that you can use, but having a mailbox with your own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t come across such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to check your email messages, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox 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 server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave 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 check your emails if you purchase one of our Linux shared hosting packages. Our email servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that satisfies your interests – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can store the messages on the server if you are running a company and a number of people need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will just need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you’d like to use your phone, we’ve added elaborate tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to store them on your home computer or to keep them on the server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also enable different people to use the very same email account – if you are hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an email app of your choice – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not need to modify any settings manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply follow our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even simpler, the how-to articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With our virtual private server plans, you’ll be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts and to use them with any email software program on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-configured email server that offers support for both protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all plans regardless of which hosting Control Panel you will pick during the VPS order process. With cPanel and Hepsia, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you create your email accounts in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird without having to enter or change any system info and any settings manually. You can use any other email client software to receive and send emails as well. You can even use your smartphone to access your electronic correspondence when you are travelling.
