There are plenty of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but having an email address with your own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have 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 send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to check your mails, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. 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 at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto 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 Shared Web Hosting
Each shared web hosting package that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to make use of based on your preferences and the purpose of your account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to leave the messages on the mail server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is built into our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software app – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even use your phone to view your email messages and we’ve got an elaborate tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to store them on your PC or to keep them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The latter option will also permit multiple individuals to check the same email account – if you are hosting a company site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in a software program of your preference – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not need to tweak any settings manually. If you have a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply follow our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything simpler, our educational articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
With our virtual private server packages, you’ll be able to create an unlimited number of email addresses and to use them with any email client software on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-installed email server that supports both email retrieval protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all plans irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose during the VPS order procedure. With cPanel and Hepsia, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you configure your mailboxes in Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird without entering or modifying any system info and any settings manually. You can use any other email client to receive and send email messages as well. You can even use your smartphone to view your electronic correspondence when you’re on the road.
