If you have an email address with your very own personal domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software app such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. 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 one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to leave a copy on the server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and check the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to access old email messages in case there is an issue with your Internet service, which is an immense advantage over web-based email services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or handheld device to access your email messages if you get one of our hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that corresponds to your needs – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the email server if you are running a firm and different people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will only need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you would rather use your phone, we’ve included in-depth tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for both email retrieval protocols, so you can select either one of them when you set up an account with an email software program. You can also download auto-config files for any email account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. In this way, you can add any account to Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without doing anything manually. In case you are on the move all the time and you would like to view your emails using a smartphone, we’ve got in-depth tutorials with screen-caps explaining how to create a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the messages onto one single device or you can store them on the email server, so as to be able to view your messages from different locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email protocols, IMAP and POP3, are available with our Linux VPS servers irrespective of the package or the Control Panel that you select. Each VPS includes a pre-installed email server, so you’ll be able to set up as many email accounts as you want, to send and to receive unlimited messages and to employ your preferred email program and even a smartphone. If you have picked cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll be granted access to auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these applications on your PC. With our VPS plans, you’ll exert full authority over your e-correspondence no matter where you are or what desktop or handheld device you’re using.
