There are lots of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your very own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you will not bump into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to access your mailboxes, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

With a Linux web hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software app to view your email messages. We support the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, so you can select either one of them when you configure an email account in accordance with your individual preference. To make things easier, you can download a small file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you set up. You can quickly set up the latter with your desired application by simply clicking on that file. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two 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 email account is configured.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them to your personal computer or to keep them on the server and to check them from multiple devices. The latter option will also allow different people to access the very same mailbox – if you’re hosting a company web site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in a software program of your preference – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t need to tweak anything manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply check out our detailed tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even simpler, the educational articles include step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both email protocols, IMAP and POP3, are offered with our Linux VPS servers regardless of the package or the Control Panel that you pick. Each VPS comes with its own pre-installed email server, so you will be able to set up as many email addresses as you wish, to send and to receive unlimited email messages and to employ your desired email client software and even a smartphone. If you have picked our Hepsia Control Panel or cPanel upon signup, you’ll be supplied with access to auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your PC. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will have full command over your e-communication no matter where you are or what mobile or desktop device you are using.
