If email messages are a key part of your e-correspondence with business associates or family members, you may be better off using a mailbox with your very own personal domain name and a mail service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, instead of relying on a web-based email service that entails limitations with regard to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any software program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to view the emails at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the email server. Also, you will be able to make use of a lot of other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that in case there’s a temporary problem with your Internet connectivity, you can still view your email messages as they will be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Each cloud website hosting package that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to rely on based on your preferences and the purpose of your account – you may choose to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to save the messages on the server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up an email account with an email application – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even use your phone to get your email messages and we have added 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 select between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them to your personal computer or to leave them on the email server and to check them from different devices. The latter option will also allow different people to use the very same mailbox – in case you are hosting a corporate web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an email client of your preference – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you will not need to configure anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply check out our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things easier, the help articles contain step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Our VPS plans come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software program as soon as your VPS is completely operational. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you won’t need to install anything manually. If your server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will spare you time and effort if you have to set up an email account in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outbound messages. With our VPS plans, you’ll be able to send/receive email messages from any location and any device. You can set up a mailbox even on your phone.
