If you use an email address with your own domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email application such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to access and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your choice to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you opt to save a copy on the mail server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and access the messages from any location. You will also be able to check old email messages if there is a problem with your Internet access, which is a huge advantage over web-based email services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to view your email messages if you buy one of our Linux website hosting packages. Our mail servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can store the messages on the email server if you are running a company and a number of people need access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will simply have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. If you’d rather use your smartphone, we have included in-depth tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them to your personal computer or to leave them on the email server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also enable different individuals to check the same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a company web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an email software application of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to modify anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just check out our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even easier, our instructional articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
With our virtual private server packages, you will be able to create unlimited mailboxes and to use them with any email application on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured email server that supports both email protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all Virtual Private Server plans irrespective of which Control Panel you’ll pick during the signup process. With Hepsia and cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you configure your email accounts in Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without entering or modifying any system info and any settings manually. You can make use of any other email app to send and receive email messages as well. You can even use your mobile phone to check your email correspondence when you’re on the road.
