There are numerous web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your own domain will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not bump into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your emails, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two 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 on your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any mobile or desktop device to check your email messages if you opt for one of our Linux web hosting. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that answers your needs – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can store the messages on the email server if you’ve got a firm and a number of employees need to be able to access them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll just have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you’d like to use your smartphone, we’ve got exhaustive tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-driven device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them on your PC or to keep them on the server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also permit multiple people to access the exact same mailbox – if you’re hosting a corporate web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email client of your preference – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not have to modify any settings manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just read our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even easier, the educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server from our company, you will be able to create unlimited mailboxes with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email application. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ll opt for during the VPS order procedure, since we’ll install POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS in all cases. You’ll be able to choose either option and, to make things even simpler, you’ll be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail – if you get the server with cPanel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up email accounts on any device without any limits, even on your smartphone – if you commute a lot and you wish to stay in touch with buddies and associates. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can decide whether to download the email messages or to leave them on the email server based on what you’ll use the email accounts for and on how many persons will need to get access to them.
