If emails are an essential part of your electronic communication with business colleagues or relatives, you would be better off using an email account with your very own personal domain name and a provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that involves limitations in regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to check the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the mail server. Also, you will be able to take advantage of many other handy options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a brief issue with your Internet connection, you can still view your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to access your email messages if you buy one of our cloud hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that fulfills your demands – you can download all emails on your home computer or you can store the emails on the server if you have a firm and different people need access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll simply have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you’d rather use your smartphone, we’ve included detailed tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them onto your personal computer or to leave them on the email server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also permit different individuals to use the very same email account – in case you are hosting a corporate 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 permit you to automatically set up everything in a software program of your choice – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you won’t need to fine-tune any settings manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just read our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything simpler, the how-to articles contain step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
With our VPS server packages, you’ll be able to set up unlimited mailboxes and to use them with any email client software on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-installed mail server that supports both email retrieval protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all VPS packages regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ll select during the order process. With Hepsia and cPanel, you’ll be even able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you set up your mailboxes in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without needing to enter or modify any system info and any settings manually. You can use any other email software program to receive and send email messages as well. You can even use your smartphone to view your email correspondence when you are on the move.
