There are lots of web-based email service providers that you can use, but using a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you won’t experience such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your emails, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

With a Linux shared package from us, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software app to view your email messages. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, so you can pick either of them when you configure a mailbox based on your individual preferences. To make things easier, you can download a small-sized file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you create. You can automatically set up the latter with your preferred application by simply clicking on that file. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two email services are harmonized, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any PC where the given mailbox is set up.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them onto your PC or to keep them on the email server and to view them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable multiple people to access the very same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. 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 an email program of your choice – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not need to configure any settings manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just see our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even simpler, the how-to articles contain step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

Both email delivery protocols, IMAP and POP3, are offered with our VPS web hosting packages regardless of the package or the hosting Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS includes its own pre-configured mail server, so you will be able to set up as many email addresses as you wish, to send and to receive unlimited messages and to use your preferred email program and even a smartphone. In case you’ve chosen cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get access to auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these apps on your PC. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you will have complete command over your e-correspondence no matter where you are or what handheld or desktop device you’re using.
