In case you use a mailbox with your very own personal domain instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email app such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird to access and manage your mailboxes. The benefit of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you set up the application of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to save a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and access the messages from any location. You’ll also be able to view old email messages if there is a problem with your Internet service, which is a huge 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 and any handheld or desktop device to view your emails if you choose one of our shared web hosting. Our email servers support both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that corresponds to your requirements – you can download all email messages onto your home computer or you can store the emails on the server if you are running a firm and a number of people need access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will simply need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. If you would rather use your phone, we have comprehensive tutorials on how to create an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them to your PC or to leave them on the server and to access them from different devices. The latter option will also enable multiple individuals to access the very same email account – in case 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 enable you to automatically set up everything in an email program of your preference – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not have to configure any settings manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – just check out our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything easier, our instructional articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email delivery protocols, IMAP and POP3, are offered with our VPS servers irrespective of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you select. Each VPS comes with a pre-configured mail server, so you will be able to set up as many email addresses as you like, to send and to receive an unlimited number of messages and to employ your favorite email program and even a smartphone. If you’ve picked our Hepsia Control Panel or cPanel during the order procedure, you’ll be granted access to auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these apps on your PC. With our VPS plans, you’ll have complete control over your electronic communication regardless of where you are or what mobile or desktop device you are using.
