There are plenty of web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email address with your own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the 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 email retrieval protocols, you will not face such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to access your mailboxes, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. 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 onto 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 Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any mobile or desktop device to check your email messages if you buy any of our Linux web hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that meets your interests – you can download all email messages to your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the server in case you have a company and different people need access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will simply have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. If you’d like to use your phone, we have included elaborate tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans support the two email delivery protocols, so you can pick either of them when you set up a mailbox with an email app. You can also download auto-config files for any mailbox that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the server. In this way, you can add any account to Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without the need to do anything manually. If you’re on the move all the time and you’d like to check your email messages using a mobile phone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials with screen-caps explaining how to set up a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our services, you can download the messages onto one single device or you can keep them on the mail server, so as to be able to access your messages from multiple devices and locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS servers come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email software program as soon as your VPS is assembled. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to configure anything manually. If your VPS comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will spare you time and effort when you need to set up an email account in any of these apps. You will also be able to send as many messages as you wish – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which handles the outbound emails. With our VPS plans, you will be able to receive/send email messages from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your mobile phone.
