In case you have an email account with your own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email app such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to access and manage your emails. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your liking to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to leave a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and see the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to see old emails if there is a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is a big advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to check your emails if you get one of our Linux hosting packages. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that matches your needs – you can download all email messages onto your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the server in case you’ve got a firm and a number of employees need to get access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will just need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve got 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 Hosting

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to download them to your PC or to keep them on the email server and to check them from different devices. The latter option will also allow different individuals to access the exact same mailbox – if you are hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in a software program of your choice – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not need to tweak anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply follow our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things easier, our instructional articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

With our virtual private server plans, you will be able to create unlimited email accounts and to use them with any email software application on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-configured email server that offers support for both email protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all Virtual Private Server plans regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ll select during the order procedure. With cPanel and Hepsia, you will be even able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you set up your email accounts in Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without the need to enter or modify any system info and any settings manually. You can use any other email program to receive and send email messages as well. You can even use your phone to check your e-correspondence when you’re on the move.
