There are plenty of web-based mail service providers that you can use, but using an email account with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you won’t run into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to check your emails, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each shared hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to rely on according to your preference and the purpose of the account – you may decide to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to save the messages on the server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is included in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software app – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can use even your mobile phone to check your email messages and we’ve included an elaborate tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers give you complete freedom with regard to how and where you can use any mailbox that you create through our Hepsia Control Panel. As we support both IMAP and POP3, you will be able to set up an email account on any mobile or desktop device regardless of the OS in use – a desktop computer, a notebook or a smartphone. You can download even our auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook and have a brand-new email account set up automatically with your preferred application. You will not need to do anything manually. Our elaborate tutorials with step-by-step screenshots will show you how to configure an email account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With any of these devices, you can decide whether the email messages should be downloaded or if they should remain on the email server. If you choose the second option, you will be able to examine your emails from different locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both email retrieval protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are offered with our VPS plans regardless of the package or the Control Panel that you select. Each VPS includes its own pre-installed email server, so you will be able to create as many mailboxes as you wish, to receive and to send an unlimited number of messages and to use your chosen email client software and even a mobile phone. If you’ve chosen cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be granted access to auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these apps on your personal computer. With our packages, you’ll exercise total command over your email correspondence no matter where you are or what desktop or handheld device you are using.
