There’re plenty of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having an email with your own domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you will not run into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to view your email messages if you select one of our Linux cloud website hosting. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that fulfills your demands – you can download all emails onto your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the server in case you have a company and a number of employees need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will only need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your phone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to download them onto your home computer or to keep them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The latter option will also permit multiple people to use the same email account – in case you’re hosting a corporate website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email client of your choice – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you won’t need to fine-tune anything manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just check our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, our educational articles contain step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

With our VPS server plans, you will be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts and to use them with any email application 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 irrespective of which Control Panel you’ll choose during the order procedure. With cPanel and Hepsia, you will be even able to download auto-config files, which will help you set up your mailboxes in Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without needing to enter or change any system information and any settings manually. You can make use of any other email software program to send and receive email messages too. You can even use your smartphone to check your electronic correspondence when you are on the move.
