If you use a mailbox with your very own personal domain and not a third-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software application such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to check and manage your email messages. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you configure the app of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to save a copy on the server. With the second one, the 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 numerous devices and access the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to access old emails in case there is an issue with your Internet connectivity, which is an enormous advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each shared hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts 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 email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to use based on your preference and the purpose of the account – you may choose to download all emails if you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the email server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email client – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your mobile phone to get your email messages and we’ve included an elaborate tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to download them on your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to view them from different devices. The second option will also permit multiple people to check the exact same mailbox – if you’re hosting a corporate website on our servers, for instance. 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 a client of your preference – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not need to modify anything manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just check our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even simpler, the educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

With our VPS server packages, you will be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts and to use them with any email app on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-configured email server that offers support for both email retrieval protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all plans regardless of which hosting Control Panel you will pick during the signup procedure. With cPanel and Hepsia, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you create your mailboxes in Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird without the need to enter or change any system info and any settings manually. You can make use of any other email software program to send and receive emails as well. You can even use your mobile phone to view your email correspondence when you are on the road.
