There are a lot of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t have such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to check your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email 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 computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each shared hosting package that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use based on your preferences and the purpose of the email account – you may decide to download all emails if you have a personal account and to store the emails on the mail server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your smartphone to examine your emails and we’ve added a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting

Both email retrieval protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our VPS hosting packages regardless of the package or the Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS comes with its own pre-installed email server, so you will be able to set up as many mailboxes as you wish, to receive and to send unlimited emails and to employ your chosen email client and even a mobile phone. If you have chosen our Hepsia Control Panel or cPanel during the order procedure, you will be bestowed with access to auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these apps on your personal computer. With our packages, you will have absolute control over your email communication regardless of where you are or what desktop or mobile device you’re using.
