If you have an email with your own personal domain instead of a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email app such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and manage your mailboxes. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to keep a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and see the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to access old emails in case there is a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is an immense advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
Each web hosting package that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to rely on according to your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may decide to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to save the emails on the email server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software application – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can use even your smartphone to view your emails and we’ve got an exhaustive tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for both email retrieval protocols, so you can choose either one when you set up an account with an email client. You can also download auto-configuration files for any email account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the server. Thus, you can add any account to Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without having to do anything manually. In case you’re non-stop on the move and you’d like to check your emails using a smartphone, we have added exhaustive tutorials with screen-caps showing how to set up a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the email messages to one single device or you can store them on the email server, so as to be able to view your emails from different devices and locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS hosting service come with 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 ready. We support both IMAP and POP3 connections by default, so you won’t have to set up anything manually. If your server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will spare you time and energy if you need to set up an account in any of these applications. You will also be able to send as many messages as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing emails. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will be able to send/receive emails from any location and any device. You can configure an email account even on your phone.
