There are plenty of web-based email providers that you can use, but using a mailbox with your own domain name will give you more credibility if you have 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. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you will not stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to check your emails, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting package that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to use in accordance with your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may want to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to store the messages on the email server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can use even your mobile phone to access your email messages and we have included an in-depth tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them to your personal computer or to leave them on the email server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow multiple people to access the very same email account – in case you are hosting a company site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in an email client of your choice – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not need to fine-tune anything manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply see our detailed tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even simpler, the educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

With our virtual private server packages, you’ll be able to create unlimited email addresses and to use them with any email app on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-configured mail server that supports both protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all VPS packages regardless of which Control Panel you’ll pick during the order procedure. With cPanel and Hepsia, you will be even able to download auto-config files, which will help you create your email accounts in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without entering or changing any system info and any settings manually. You can make use of any other email application to send and receive email messages as well. You can even use your mobile phone to check your email correspondence when you’re travelling.
