There are many web-based email service providers that you can use, but using a mailbox with your own personal domain will give you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you will not face such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to access your email messages, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to examine your emails if you order any of our cloud hosting. Our mail servers support both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your interests – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can keep the messages on the email server in case you’ve got a firm and a number of people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will simply need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you prefer to use your phone, we have included in-depth tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them on your home computer or to leave them on the email server and to view them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable multiple people to check the same mailbox – in case you are hosting a company web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an email software app of your preference – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you won’t need to tweak anything manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just examine our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even easier, our help articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
