In case email messages are an important component of your e-correspondence with business associates or family members, it might be better to use a mailbox with your own personal domain name and an email provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, rather than using a web-based service that entails restrictions with regard to the size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to access your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to examine the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the email server. Plus, you’ll be able to take advantage of plenty of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a temporary issue with your Internet connectivity, you can still view your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to check your emails if you get one of our Linux shared web hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that corresponds to your needs – you can download all emails to your personal computer or you can store the emails on the server in case you have a company and different employees need to access 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 – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You’ll just have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your smartphone, we have comprehensive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols in case 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 emails – to download them onto your personal computer or to keep them on the server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable multiple individuals to check the exact same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate 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 enable you to automatically set up everything in an application of your choice – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to tweak anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just follow our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even easier, the instructional articles contain step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server through us, you will be able to create unlimited mailboxes with any domain hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software app. This is valid regardless of the Control Panel that you’ll pick during the signup process, as we will set up POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS in all cases. You will be able to pick either option and, to make everything even simpler, you will be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook – if you get the VPS with cPanel or with our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You can create mailboxes on any device without any restrictions, even on your phone – if you commute a lot and you’d like to keep in touch with buddies and partners. With us, you can decide whether to download the email messages or to save them on the mail server depending on what you’ll use the mailboxes for and on how many people will need to be able to access them.
