In case email messages are a vital part of your online correspondence with business colleagues or family members, you would be better off using an email with your own domain name and a mail service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that entails limitations with regard to the size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any application – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to check the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the mail server. In addition, you will be able to use lots of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that in case there’s a temporary issue with your Internet service, you can still check your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
With a Linux shared plan from us, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software app to check your emails. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, so you can opt for either one of them when you create a mailbox in accordance with your own preferences. To make things easier, you can download a small-sized file from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for each mailbox that you create. You can easily set up the latter with your desired application by simply running that file on your PC. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two services are harmonized, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any PC where the particular email account is configured.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans support both email delivery protocols, so you can pick either one when you set up a mailbox with an email app. You can also download auto-config files for any email account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer your server. In this way, you can add any account to Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without having to do anything manually. If you’re non-stop on the move and you’d like to check your email messages using a smartphone, we have included comprehensive tutorials with screenshots illustrating how to set up an email account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the email messages to a single device or you can store them on the email server, so as to be able to view your messages from different locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
With our VPS server plans, you’ll be able to set up unlimited email addresses and to use them with any email program on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-configured mail server that supports both email protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all VPS packages irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you’ll select upon signup. With Hepsia and cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you create your mailboxes in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird without entering or changing any system info and any settings manually. You can use any other email software application to receive and send email messages as well. You can even use your phone to access your e-correspondence when you’re on the road.
