There’re plenty of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your own domain name will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, 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 offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you won’t come across such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your emails, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or handheld device to view your emails if you choose one of our Linux shared website hosting packages. Our mail servers support both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that matches your needs – you can download all emails to your personal computer or you can store the emails on the email server if you have a firm and a number of employees need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will simply need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you prefer to use your smartphone, we have included in-depth tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us, you will be able to view your email messages from any device with ease. In case you are non-stop on the move, you can see our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android smartphones, and in case you use a desktop PC or a notebook, you can download our auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird and set up a mailbox with your preferred email software program without having to do anything manually. Since we offer support for both POP3 and IMAP, you can opt for the email protocol that satisfies your demands most – you may want to download personal emails locally at your end, while if you use our email services for business purposes, you should choose IMAP, so as to permit multiple people to access a certain email account from different computers.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
Our VPS feature a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email client as soon as your server is fully functional. We support both IMAP and POP3 connections by default, so you will not need to install anything manually. If your VPS comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will save you time and energy when you have to set up a mailbox in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you wish – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outbound messages. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will be able to receive and send emails from any location and any device. You can create a mailbox even on your smartphone.
