There’re numerous web-based email service providers that you can use, but having a mailbox with your own domain will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, 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. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you will not come across such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your computer to check your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox 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, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each cloud hosting package that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to rely on according to your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to save the emails on the email server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email application – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even use your smartphone to get your emails and we have included an in-depth tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers give you absolute independence in terms of where and how you can use any email account that you set up through our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Since we support both IMAP and POP3, you’ll be able to set up an email account on any device regardless of the Operating System in use – a desktop PC, a laptop or a phone. You can download even our auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook and have a brand new mailbox set up automatically with your chosen email program. You will not need to do anything manually. Our detailed tutorials with step-by-step screen-caps will show you how to create an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With all these devices, you can decide if the emails should be downloaded or if they should remain on the mail server. If you pick the latter option, you will be able to view your email messages from multiple locations.
