In case you use a mailbox with your own domain name instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email app such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to check and manage your emails. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email delivery protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to save a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and access the messages from any location. You will also be able to examine old email messages if there is an issue with your Internet access, which is a huge advantage over web-based email services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
With a shared plan from us, you will be able to use any device and any email application to check your email messages. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, so you can pick either one of them when you create a mailbox depending on your individual preference. To make things easier, you can download a small file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you set up. You can effortlessly set up the latter with your chosen app by simply running that file on your PC. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two services go hand in hand, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given email account is configured.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for both email retrieval protocols, so you can pick either one when you set up a mailbox with an email client. You can also download auto-configuration files for any mailbox that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the server. In this way, you can add any email account to Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without the need to do anything manually. In case you are non-stop on the move and you’d like to access your emails using a mobile phone, we’ve added comprehensive tutorials with screen-caps teaching how to set up an email account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the messages to one single device or you can store them on the server, so as to be able to check your emails from multiple devices and locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email protocols, IMAP and POP3, are available with our VPS web hosting plans regardless of the plan or the Control Panel that you select. Each VPS comes with its own pre-configured mail server, so you’ll be able to create as many email accounts as you like, to receive and to send unlimited email messages and to employ your chosen email client software and even a mobile phone. In case you’ve chosen cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll be granted access to auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these apps on your PC. With our plans, you will exert total command over your email correspondence regardless of where you are or what mobile or desktop device you’re using.
