There are lots of web-based email service providers that you can use, but using an email with your own domain will grant you more credibility if you have 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 POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t run into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your email messages, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any mobile or desktop device to check your email messages if you purchase any of our Linux cloud hosting. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that answers your demands – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can leave the emails on the server in case you are running a company and a number of people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a specific email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will simply need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your phone, we’ve included elaborate tutorials on how to create an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to store them on your PC or to keep them on the server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also permit multiple individuals to access the same email account – in case you’re hosting a company site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an email software app of your choice – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you will not need to configure any settings manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just read our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even easier, the help articles contain step-by-step screenshots.

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 a mailbox and set it up in an email app as soon as your server is fully functional. We support both IMAP and POP3 connections by default, so you will not have to install anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will spare you time and effort when you have to set up a mailbox in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send out as many messages as you like – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing emails. With our plans, you will be able to receive and send emails from any location and any device. You can create an email account even on your phone.
