In case emails are an essential component of your online communication with business partners or relatives, it may be better to use a mailbox with your very own personal domain and an email provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based service that involves restrictions with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software program – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to examine the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the mail server. On top of that, you’ll be able to take advantage of a lot of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that in case there’s a brief predicament with your Internet access, you can still see your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
If you get a Linux shared service through us, you will be able to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up with any email application. During the setup process, you can choose POP3 or IMAP as we offer support for both protocols, so it will be up to you if all email messages will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will stay on the server. With us, you can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone irrespective of its OS and we have added elaborate tutorials on how to do that. To spare some time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an account in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail automatically. With our services, you can select a preferred device and app to access your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them onto your personal computer or to keep them on the server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also allow multiple individuals to access the exact same email account – if you are hosting a corporate web site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in a program of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not need to modify anything manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply follow our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything even easier, our help articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email retrieval protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our Linux VPS servers regardless of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you select. Each VPS includes its own pre-configured mail server, so you’ll be able to set up as many email accounts as you wish, to send and to receive an unlimited number of email messages and to use your preferred email software app and even a smartphone. In case you’ve picked cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the VPS order procedure, you will get access to auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your personal computer. With our VPS plans, you will exert absolute authority over your electronic correspondence irrespective of where you are or what desktop or mobile device you’re using.
