There are numerous web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your own domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations 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 protocols, you will not come across such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to check your emails, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account 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 server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to check your email messages if you select one of our Linux cloud website hosting packages. Our email servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that matches your needs – you can download all email messages on your home computer or you can leave the messages on the server if you have a company and different people need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You’ll simply have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you wish to use your phone, we have elaborate tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to store them on your home computer or to keep them on the email server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow multiple people to use the exact same email account – if you’re hosting a company site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an email client of your choosing – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not have to tweak any settings manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply check out our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even simpler, the help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With our virtual private server plans, you will be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts and to use them with any email client on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured email server that offers support for both email protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all VPS plans regardless of which hosting Control Panel you will select during the order procedure. With Hepsia and cPanel, you will be even able to download auto-config files, which will help you configure your mailboxes in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird without entering or changing any system info or any settings manually. You can make use of any other email software app to send and receive email messages as well. You can even use your phone to check your e-correspondence when you’re travelling.
