If you use a mailbox with your very own personal domain name instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email application such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to access and manage your mailboxes. The benefit of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email protocols that you can choose from when you configure the app of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to leave a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and check the messages from any place. You will also be able to check old emails in case there’s a predicament with your Internet access, which is an enormous advantage over web-based email services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to check your emails if you get one of our Linux shared hosting plans. Our mail servers offer support for both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that meets your demands – you can download all emails onto your home computer or you can leave the emails on the mail server if you’ve got a firm and a number of people need access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You will only need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you’d like to use your phone, we have added exhaustive tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them on your PC or to keep them on the server and to view them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable multiple individuals to check the very same email account – if you are hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in a program of your choice – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t need to modify any settings manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just read our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even simpler, our instructional articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to create unlimited email accounts with any domain name hosted on the VPS and to set them up with any email application. This is valid irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you will choose during the signup process, as we will install POP3 and IMAP mail servers on the VPS anyhow. You will be able to pick either option and, to make things even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird – if you order the server with cPanel or with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You can create email accounts on any device without any restrictions, even on your phone – if you commute a lot and you’d like to keep in contact with buddies and associates. With our services, you can decide whether to download the email messages or to keep them on the mail server based on what you’ll use the email accounts for and on how many persons will need to be able to access them.
