There are a lot of web-based mail service providers that you can use, but using an email address with your own personal domain will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to access your email messages, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to check your email messages if you get one of our Linux shared web hosting services. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that answers your interests – you can download all emails onto your home computer or you can store the emails on the server in case you’ve got a company and a number of employees need access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll simply need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your phone, we have exhaustive tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to save them to your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also allow different individuals to access the exact same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an email application of your choosing – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to modify anything manually. If you have a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just see our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even simpler, our educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
Both email retrieval protocols, IMAP and POP3, are offered with our Linux VPS hosting services irrespective of the plan or the Control Panel that you select. Each VPS comes with a pre-configured mail server, so you’ll be able to create as many mailboxes as you want, to receive and to send an unlimited number of email messages and to use your favorite email client and even a mobile phone. In case you have selected cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be supplied with access to auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your computer. With our VPS plans, you’ll exert full control over your email correspondence no matter where you are or what mobile or desktop device you are using.
