In case email messages are a fundamental component of your online communication with business associates or relatives, you may be better off using an email address with your own personal domain name and an email service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that entails restrictions with regards to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to access your email messages on any desktop or mobile device using any software application – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to see the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the mail server. In addition, you will be able to make use of a lot of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a temporary issue with your Internet connection, you can still see your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to examine your emails if you opt for any of our shared web hosting packages
. Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that suits your needs – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can leave the emails on the email server in case you are running a company and a number of employees need to have access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will only need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. If you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve got comprehensive tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server
account with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them on your PC or to keep them on the server and to check them from multiple devices. The latter option will also permit multiple individuals to check the very same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in a software application of your choosing – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not have to configure any settings manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just read our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even simpler, our help articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting
include a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email app as soon as your server is fully functional. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you won’t need to configure anything manually. If your VPS comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will spare you time and effort when you need to set up an account in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send out as many emails as you like – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing emails. With our VPS packages, you’ll be able to send and receive messages from any location and any device. You can set up a mailbox even on your phone.
