If you have an email address with your very own personal domain name instead of a third-party one, you will be able to make use of an email application such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird to check and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email delivery protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your liking to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you opt to store a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and access the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to access old emails in case there’s an issue with your Internet connection, which is a big advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to check your email messages if you choose one of our Linux cloud hosting packages. Our mail servers support both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that matches your needs – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can leave the messages on the email server in case you’ve got a company and a number of employees need to access them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll simply have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve added elaborate tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We offer support for both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them onto your home computer or to keep them on the email server and to check them from multiple devices. The latter option will also permit different individuals to check the same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a company web site 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 enable you to automatically set up everything in a client of your preference – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not have to tweak anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just see our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things simpler, the help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting

With our virtual private server plans, you will be able to set up an unlimited number of mailboxes and to use them with any email app on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-installed email server that offers support for both protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all plans regardless of which Control Panel you’ll choose during the VPS order process. With Hepsia and cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you set up your mailboxes in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without the need to enter or change any system info or any settings manually. You can make use of any other email program to receive and send emails as well. You can even use your smartphone to access your e-correspondence when you are travelling.
