There’re numerous web-based email providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your very own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your mails, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

If you order a Linux shared hosting through our company, you’ll be able to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up with any email app. During the setup process, you can select IMAP or POP3 as we offer support for the two email retrieval protocols, so it will be up to you if all emails will be downloaded at your end or if they will stay on the email server. With us, you can even set up an email account on your smartphone irrespective of its OS and we’ve added in-depth tutorials on how to carry out that. To spare some time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an email account in Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird automatically. With our hosting plans, you can select a preferred device and software application to access your email messages.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to save them to your home computer or to keep them on the server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also enable different individuals to access the exact same email account – if 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 Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an email software program of your preference – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not need to tweak any settings manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply read our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things simpler, the instructional articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
