There’re lots of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but having a mailbox with your own domain name will give you more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your emails, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. 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, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal 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 Web Hosting

Each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to use according to your preference and the purpose of the account – you may choose to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to save the emails on the server – if you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can use even your mobile phone to access your emails and we’ve got a detailed tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use a semi-dedicated server package with us, you’ll be able to access your email messages from any device with ease. If you’re on the road all the time, you can check our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android smartphones, and in case you have a desktop computer or a notebook, you can download our auto-config files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird and set up a mailbox with your desired email software application without having to do anything manually. Since we offer support for both POP3 and IMAP, you can opt for the email protocol that meets your needs best – you may decide to download personal emails locally at your end, while if you use our email services for business purposes, you should pick IMAP, so as to allow lots of people to access a particular email account from different devices.

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 application on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-configured email server that offers support for both email retrieval protocols – POP3 and IMAP.
