In case you use an email with your very own personal domain and not a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email software application such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to check and administer 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 retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you set up the application of your preference to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to store a copy on the mail server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and access the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to access old emails if there is a problem with your Internet service, which is an advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to use depending on your preferences and the purpose of the email account – you may want to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to keep the emails on the email server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software app – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even use your phone to access your email messages and we’ve got a detailed tutorial on how to carry out 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 have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to download them to your personal computer or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also allow different people to access the exact same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in a software program of your choosing – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to modify anything manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply check out our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, the educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting

Both email protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our Linux VPS hosting irrespective of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS comes with its own pre-configured email server, so you’ll be able to set up as many email addresses as you wish, to receive and to send unlimited email messages and to employ your chosen email client and even a mobile phone. If you have chosen cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the VPS order process, you’ll gain access to auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these applications on your computer. With our plans, you’ll have total authority over your electronic correspondence regardless of where you are or what device you’re using.
