If emails are an essential part of your electronic correspondence with business colleagues or family members, it may be better to use an email address with your own personal domain name and a provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based service that involves restrictions as to the size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to see the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Moreover, you will be able to take advantage of plenty of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that if there is a temporary issue with your Internet connectivity, you can still see your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any device to access your email messages if you purchase any of our hosting plans. Our email servers support both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fulfills your interests – you can download all emails onto your PC or you can keep the emails on the server if you are running a firm and different employees need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will just need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you would like to use your phone, we have detailed tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages support the two email delivery protocols, so you can opt for either one when you set up an account with an email application. You can also download auto-config files for any mailbox that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any account to Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird without having to do anything manually. In case you are non-stop on the move and you would like to check your emails using a smartphone, we have detailed tutorials with screen-caps revealing how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the messages onto a single device or you can leave them on the email server, so as to be able to view your emails from different locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email protocols, IMAP and POP3, are available with our VPS web hosting plans irrespective of the package or the hosting Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS comes with its own pre-installed mail server, so you’ll be able to set up as many email addresses as you want, to receive and to send unlimited email messages and to employ your favorite email program and even a smartphone. In case you have picked our Hepsia Control Panel or cPanel during the signup procedure, you will have access to auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these applications on your PC. With our packages, you will exercise absolute control over your electronic communication irrespective of where you are or what desktop or mobile device you’re using.
