If you have a mailbox with your own domain instead of a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and administer your email accounts. The benefit of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your choice to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to leave a copy on the email server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and access the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to examine old emails if there’s a problem with your Internet connection, which is an immense advantage over a web-based email service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to access your emails if you select any of our Linux shared web hosting. Our mail servers support both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that answers your requirements – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can leave the emails on the server in case you are running a firm and a number of people need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a given mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll simply need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you’d rather use your phone, we’ve added detailed tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for both email delivery protocols, so you can choose either of them when you set up an account with an email client. You can also download auto-config files for any email account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the server. In this way, you can add any account to Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without doing anything manually. In case you’re on the move all the time and you would like to view your email messages using a smartphone, we have added in-depth tutorials with screen-caps explaining how to set up a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the emails onto one single device or you can leave them on the email server, so as to be able to view your emails from different locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email app as soon as your Virtual Private Server is completely functional. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to set up anything manually. If your server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will save you time and effort if you need to set up an email account in any of these applications. You will also be able to send as many emails as you wish – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outbound messages. With us, you will be able to send and receive email messages from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your phone.
