There are lots of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your own personal domain 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 size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not have such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your computer to check your email messages, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any device to check your emails if you choose any of our cloud web hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fulfills your requirements – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can store the messages on the server in case you’ve got a company and different employees need access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll only need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you’d like to use your phone, we have included detailed tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to save them to your home computer or to leave them on the email server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also allow different people to access the same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in an email client of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t need to tweak anything manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just examine our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything easier, our how-to articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers feature a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email app as soon as your Virtual Private Server is fully functional. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you will not need to install anything manually. If your VPS comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will spare you time and effort if you need to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You will also be able to send as many email messages as you wish – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outbound messages. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will be able to receive/send messages from any location and any device. You can configure an email account even on your mobile phone.
