If you have an email with your own domain and not a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software app such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and manage your email messages. The benefit of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to keep a copy on the email server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and see the email messages from any place. You will also be able to access old emails if there is a predicament with your Internet connection, which is a big advantage over a web-based service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
Each hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to rely on in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of the account – you may want to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to leave the emails on the mail server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up an email account with an email application – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even use your phone to check your emails and we have an exhaustive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us, you will be able to examine your email messages from any device with ease. If you are on the road all the time, you can check our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android phones, and if you have a laptop or a desktop PC, you can download our auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook and set up a mailbox with your preferred email app without having to do anything manually. As we support both IMAP and POP3, you can choose the email delivery protocol that corresponds to your requirements most – you may want to download personal emails locally at your end, while if you use our email services for commercial purposes, you should pick IMAP, so as to enable lots of people to access a specific email account from separate devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
Our VPS include a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email app as soon as your Virtual Private Server is fully operational. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you will not need to set up anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Outlook 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 messages as you like – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing messages. With our VPS plans, you will be able to receive and send messages from any location and any device. You can configure a mailbox even on your smartphone.
