There are numerous web-based email service providers that you can use, but using an email account with your own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to access your mails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two email 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 on your personal 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 Cloud Website Hosting
Each cloud website hosting package that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to make use of based on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may want to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to leave the emails on the mail server – if you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your smartphone to access your emails and we have a detailed tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to download them to your home computer or to keep them on the email server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow different people to use the exact same email account – in case you are hosting a company web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. 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 application of your preference – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t need to configure anything manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply check out our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, our instructional articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
Both email protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are offered with our Linux VPS web hosting packages regardless of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS comes with its own pre-installed mail server, so you will be able to set up as many mailboxes as you wish, to send and to receive an unlimited number of messages and to use your chosen email client software and even a smartphone. In case you’ve picked cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel upon signup, you will be granted access to auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these apps on your PC. With us, you’ll exert total command over your email communication regardless of where you are or what mobile or desktop device you are using.
