If you have a mailbox with your very own personal domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email app such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to access and manage your emails. The advantage of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email protocols that you can select from when you set up the application of your preference to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to save a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and check the email messages from any place. You will also be able to check old email messages in case there’s a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is a huge advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to view your email messages if you get one of our Linux hosting packages. Our email servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that suits your demands – you can download all emails to your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the server in case you have a company and a number of people need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will just need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you would like to use your phone, we’ve included comprehensive tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to save them to your home computer or to leave them on the email server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable different individuals to check the same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in a program of your choice – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not have to tweak anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply check our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything simpler, the help articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
If you order a virtual private server through us, you will be able to create unlimited email accounts with any domain hosted on the VPS and to set them up with any email app. This is valid irrespective of the Control Panel that you will pick during the VPS order process, as we will set up IMAP and POP3 mail servers on the VPS in any case. You’ll be able to choose either option and, to make everything even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook – if you order the server with cPanel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up mailboxes on any device without any limits, even on your smartphone – if you travel a lot and you’d like to stay in touch with buddies and colleagues. With us, you can decide whether to download the email messages or to keep them on the server depending on what you will use the email accounts for and on how many individuals will need to access them.
