There’re lots of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but having a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you won’t bump into such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your computer to access your emails, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account 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, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

Each website hosting package that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of based on your preference and the purpose of the account – you may choose to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to store the emails on the mail server – if you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is built into our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email app – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can use even your smartphone to access your email messages and we have added a detailed tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them on your personal computer or to keep them on the email server and to view them from different devices. The second option will also enable different individuals to access the very same mailbox – in case you are hosting a corporate website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in a software application of your choice – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not need to configure any settings manually. If you have a mobile phone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply check our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even easier, our help articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
