There are many web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but having a mailbox with your own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to access your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on 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 Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to check your email messages if you buy any of our shared website hosting. Our email servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that answers your interests – you can download all emails on your home computer or you can keep the messages on the mail server in case you’ve got a company and different employees need to get access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will simply need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you would like to use your smartphone, we’ve added detailed tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to store them on your home computer or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable different individuals to use the very same mailbox – if you’re hosting a corporate site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email program of your preference – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t need to fine-tune any settings manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply read our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, the help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

With our VPS server plans, you will be able to create an unlimited number of mailboxes and to use them with any email software app on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-installed mail server that supports both email retrieval protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all plans no matter which Control Panel you will pick during the VPS order procedure. With Hepsia and cPanel, you’ll be even able to download auto-config files, which will help you configure your mailboxes in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird without entering or modifying any system information or any settings manually. You can use any other email application to receive and send email messages as well. You can even use your mobile phone to check your email correspondence when you are travelling.
