In case you have an email with your own domain and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software app such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to access and administer your mailboxes. The benefit of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the app of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you opt to store a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and see the messages from any location. You’ll also be able to examine old email messages if there’s an issue with your Internet connection, which is an immense advantage over a web-based service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
With a Linux shared web hosting from us, you will be able to use any device and any email application to check your emails. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, so you can choose either one of them when you create a mailbox depending on your personal preferences. To make things easier, you can download a small file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you create. You can quickly set up the latter with your chosen app by simply running that file on your PC. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two email services go hand in hand, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the particular email account is configured.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages support the two email delivery protocols, so you can opt for either of them when you set up a mailbox with an email program. You can also download auto-configuration files for any mailbox that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any account to Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird without doing anything manually. In case you are on the move all the time and you’d like to view your emails using a mobile phone, we’ve got in-depth tutorials with screenshots teaching how to configure a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our services, you can download the messages on a single device or you can keep them on the mail server, so as to be able to view your emails from different devices and locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
If you get a virtual private server through us, you will be able to create unlimited email accounts with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software application. This is valid irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you’ll choose during the signup process, as we’ll install IMAP and POP3 mail servers on the VPS in all cases. You will be able to pick 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 order the server with cPanel or with our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can configure email accounts on any device without any limits, even on your smartphone – if you travel a lot and you want to stay in touch with friends and colleagues. With our services, you can select whether to download the emails or to leave them on the server depending on what you’ll use the email accounts for and on how many persons will need to have access to them.
