There’re numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email address with your own domain will give you more credibility if you are running a business, for example, 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 IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t run into such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your mailboxes, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to check your emails if you buy any of our Linux hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that meets your demands – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the email server in case you have a firm and a number of people need to have access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will only have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you would like to use your smartphone, we have added in-depth tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-based device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols in case you have 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 download them onto your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable different people to check the same email account – in case you are hosting a corporate site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an email software program of your choice – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to tweak anything manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply examine our detailed tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even easier, our educational articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server from our company, you will be able to create unlimited email accounts with any domain hosted on the VPS and to set them up with any email client. This is valid regardless of the Control Panel that you will pick upon signup, as we will install IMAP and POP3 mail servers on the VPS in any case. You will be able to select either option and, to make everything even simpler, you’ll be able to download auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird – if you get the server with cPanel or with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can configure email accounts on any device without any limits, even on your phone – if you commute a lot and you wish to be in touch with buddies and partners. With us, you can decide whether to download the email messages or to keep them on the server based on what you will use the email accounts for and on how many people will need to be able to access them.
