There are numerous web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you won’t bump into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to check your emails, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your mobile device. The difference between the two email 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 to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

Each and every website hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use based on your preferences and the purpose of the account – you may choose to download all emails if you’ve got a personal account and to keep the emails on the mail server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email application – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your smartphone to access your emails and we have included a comprehensive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages give you full independence with regards to where and how you can use any mailbox that you create through our Hepsia Control Panel. As we support both POP3 and IMAP, you will be able to configure a mailbox on any desktop or handheld device irrespective of the OS in use – a desktop PC, a laptop or a mobile phone. You can download even our auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook and have a new mailbox automatically set up with your preferred software app. You’ll not have to do anything manually. Our detailed tutorials with step-by-step screenshots will teach you how to set up an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With any of these devices, you can choose if the email messages should be downloaded or if they should remain on the server. If you pick the second option, you will be able to examine your emails from multiple locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting

Both email protocols, IMAP and POP3, are available with our Linux VPS hosting packages regardless of the package or the Control Panel that you select.

If you’ve chosen cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be provided with access to auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these applications on your PC.
