There’re lots of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using an email with your own domain name will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you won’t come across such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to access your email accounts, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, 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 and every shared hosting package that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to use according to your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may want to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to leave the emails on the email server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is built into our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email app – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your mobile phone to view your emails and we have added a detailed tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to save them to your home computer or to keep them on the server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable different people to check the same mailbox – in case you are hosting a corporate web site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in an email client of your choice – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not have to fine-tune any settings manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply see our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android.
