If you have a mailbox with your own personal domain name instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email software application such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to check and manage your email accounts. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to save a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and access the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to see old emails in case there is an issue with your Internet connection, which is a huge advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to view your emails if you order one of our Linux hosting packages. Our mail servers support both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can keep the messages on the server if you have a firm and a number of employees need to have access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll simply have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you would rather use your smartphone, we’ve got detailed tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-driven handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them on your personal computer or to keep them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also permit multiple individuals to check the same email account – if 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 allow you to automatically set up everything in an email application of your choice – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to tweak anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply follow our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything easier, the help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

Both email protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are offered with our Linux VPS web hosting packages regardless of the package or the hosting Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS comes with its own pre-configured email server, so you will be able to set up as many email accounts as you like, to receive and to send an unlimited number of messages and to employ your favorite email software program and even a smartphone. In case you’ve selected our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or cPanel during the order process, you will be provided with access to auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these applications on your personal computer. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will exercise total authority over your email communication no matter where you are or what desktop or handheld device you are using.
