If emails are an essential part of your e-correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, you would be better off using an email with your very own personal domain name and an email provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, instead of relying on a web-based email service that entails restrictions in regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to check your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, and so forth. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to see the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the mail server. Also, you will be able to take advantage of a lot of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a temporary predicament with your Internet connection, you can still see your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any device to check your email messages if you buy any of our Linux cloud hosting plans. Our mail servers support both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that fulfills your requirements – you can download all emails onto your PC or you can keep the messages on the email server if you are running a company and a number of employees need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a given 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 PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you prefer to use your phone, we have added elaborate tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to store them on your PC or to leave them on the server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also allow multiple individuals to use the exact same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an email app of your preference – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not need to modify any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply follow our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even easier, the help articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server from our company, you will 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 regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you will opt for upon signup, as we’ll install POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS in any event. You will be able to pick either option and, to make everything even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird – if you get the server with cPanel or with our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can configure email accounts on any device without any restrictions, even on your phone – if you travel a lot and you want to stay in touch with mates and associates. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can choose whether to download the emails or to store them on the mail server based on what you will use the mailboxes for and on how many individuals will need to access them.
