There are many web-based email providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not come across such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to check your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to check your emails if you select any of our Linux website hosting. Our email servers support both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fulfills your interests – you can download all email messages on your home computer or you can store the emails on the server if you have a company and a number of people need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll simply have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. If you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve added exhaustive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to download them on your home computer or to keep them on the mail server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow multiple individuals to use the exact same mailbox – in case you are hosting a company web site 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 app of your preference – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you won’t have to configure anything manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just follow our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even simpler, our instructional articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email retrieval protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are offered with our Linux VPS service regardless of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you pick. Each VPS comes with its own pre-installed email server, so you’ll be able to create as many email addresses as you wish, to send and to receive unlimited emails and to use your chosen email software program and even a mobile phone. In case you have chosen our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or cPanel during the order process, you’ll be granted access to auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these applications on your personal computer. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you will exercise absolute command over your e-correspondence no matter where you are or what desktop or handheld device you are using.
