In case email messages are a vital component of your online correspondence with business colleagues or family members, it may be better to use an email with your own personal domain name and a provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, rather than using a web-based email service that entails restrictions as to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to check your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any application – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to view the emails at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the email server. In addition, you will be able to take advantage of a lot of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that if there’s a temporary problem with your Internet connection, you can still check your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each and every shared hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to make use of depending on your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to leave the emails on the mail server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even use your smartphone to check your email messages and we have added a detailed tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to save them to your personal computer or to keep them on the email server and to view them from multiple devices. The latter option will also permit different people to use the same email account – if you are hosting a corporate site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in an email application of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not have to modify any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply read our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything easier, our help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

Our Linux VPS feature a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software program as soon as your server is assembled. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you will not have to set up anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will save you time and energy if you need to set up an email account in any of these applications. You will also be able to send as many messages as you want – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which handles the outgoing emails. With our VPS packages, you will be able to receive/send emails from any location and any device. You can configure a mailbox even on your smartphone.
