If you have a mailbox with your own personal domain instead of a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to access and administer your email accounts. The advantage of using such applications 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 select from when you configure the app of your preference to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to leave a copy on the server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain 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 see old emails in case there’s an issue with your Internet service, which is a big advantage over a web-based service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting
Each website hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to rely on based on your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may choose to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to store the emails on the server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your mobile phone to check your emails and we have added a comprehensive 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 pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them on your home computer or to leave them on the email server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable multiple people to access the very same email account – in case you are hosting a corporate web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in a client of your preference – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not have to configure any settings manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply see our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even easier, the help articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email program as soon as your VPS is assembled. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you will not need to install anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will save you time and energy if you need to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you like – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outbound messages. With our plans, you’ll be able to receive and send email messages from any location and any device. You can create a mailbox even on your smartphone.
