There’re a lot of web-based mail service providers that you can use, but using an email with your own domain name will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions 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 retrieval protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to access your email messages, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

Each and every website hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain 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 support both, so you can choose which one to rely on in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the mail server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even use your phone to check your emails and we’ve added an in-depth tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them to your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to view them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow different individuals to access the same email account – in case you are hosting a corporate website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in a program of your choosing – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you will not need to tweak any settings manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply read our comprehensive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything easier, our help articles contain step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

Our VPS packages include a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software program as soon as your server is fully functional. We support both IMAP and POP3 connections by default, so you won’t need to set up anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will spare you time and energy if you have to set up an email account in any of these applications. You will also be able to send as many messages as you wish – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outbound emails. With our VPS packages, you’ll be able to send and receive email messages from any location and any device. You can configure a mailbox even on your smartphone.
