There are a lot of web-based email service providers that you can use, but using an email with your own domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to access your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account 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 server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to examine your emails if you pick one of our Linux cloud hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that corresponds to your demands – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can keep the emails on the mail server in case you have a company and different employees need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll simply have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you’d rather use your phone, we have exhaustive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for the two email delivery protocols, so you can select either one of them when you set up an email account with an email software program. You can also download auto-config files for any email account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your server. Thus, you can add any email account to Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without having to do anything manually. If you’re on the move all the time and you would like to check your email messages using a mobile phone, we have added in-depth tutorials with screen-caps showing how to configure a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the messages onto one single device or you can store them on the server, so as to be able to check your messages from multiple locations and devices.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from our company, you will be able to create unlimited mailboxes with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email client. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ll opt for during the signup process, as we’ll set up POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS in all cases. You will be able to select either option and, to make things even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook – if you get the server with cPanel or with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can configure mailboxes on any device without any limits, even on your mobile phone – if you commute a lot and you wish to keep in contact with mates and associates. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can choose whether to download the emails or to save them on the email server based on what you will use the accounts for and on how many individuals will need to get access to them.
