There’re numerous web-based mail service providers that you can use, but having an email address with your own domain will give you more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not experience such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to check your email messages, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

Each and every website hosting package that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to make use of in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of the account – you may want to download all emails if you’ve got a personal account and to keep the messages on the email server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software app – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can use even your mobile phone to check your emails and we have added an in-depth tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them on your home computer or to leave them on the server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also permit multiple people to access the same email account – if you are hosting a corporate website on our servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email software program of your choice – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t need to configure any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just examine our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even easier, our how-to articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
