If you have an email account with your own personal domain instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email app such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to check and manage your emails. The advantage of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email protocols that you can select from when you set up the application of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to leave a copy on the mail server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and view the messages from any location. You will also be able to access old emails in case there’s a predicament with your Internet access, which is an immense advantage over a web-based service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
If you buy a web hosting service from us, you will be able to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up with any email app. During the setup process, you can select POP3 or IMAP as we support the two email protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the server. With our company, you can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone irrespective of its OS and we have included comprehensive tutorials on how to do that. To save yourself some time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration 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 email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages support both email retrieval protocols, so you can select either of them when you set up an email account with an email software program. You can also download auto-configuration files for any email account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. In this way, you can add any email account to Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without having to do anything manually. In case you’re on the move all the time and you’d like to view your emails using a mobile phone, we’ve included detailed tutorials with screenshots illustrating how to create an account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our services, you can download the messages to one single device or you can keep them on the mail server, so as to be able to check your messages from different locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers feature a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain name, then create an email account and set it up in an email software program as soon as your Virtual Private Server is ready. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you will not need to configure anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will spare you time and energy if you have to set up a mailbox in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send as many email messages as you want – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing emails. With our VPS packages, you’ll be able to receive/send emails from any location and any device. You can set up a mailbox even on your smartphone.
