If you use an email address with your own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software application such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to access and manage your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email protocols that you can select from when you set up the application of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to store a copy on the email server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and view the email messages from any place. You will also be able to see old email messages if there’s a predicament with your Internet access, which is a big advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any mobile or desktop device to check your email messages if you get any of our Linux shared hosting packages. Our mail servers support both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that suits your needs – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can store the messages on the server in case you are running a firm and a number of people need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll only have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. If you want to use your smartphone, we’ve got exhaustive tutorials on how to create an email account on an iOS- or an Android-based handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to download them to your PC or to leave them on the email server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow different people to use the same mailbox – in case you are hosting a company website 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 set up everything automatically in a software program of your choice – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not have to configure anything manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply follow our comprehensive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even simpler, the help articles include step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With our virtual private server packages, you will be able to create an unlimited number of email addresses and to use them with any email client software on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured mail server that supports both email retrieval protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all Virtual Private Server plans no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose during the signup procedure. With Hepsia and cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you configure your email accounts in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without having to enter or change any system information and any settings manually. You can use any other email client software to send and receive emails too. You can even use your smartphone to access your email correspondence when you’re on the road.
