There are lots of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but having a mailbox with your very own personal domain will give you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you won’t bump into such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

If you purchase a Linux cloud web hosting through us, you’ll be able to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up with any email software app. During the setup process, you can select POP3 or IMAP as we support both protocols, so it will depend on you if all email messages will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will stay on the server. With us, you can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone regardless of its OS and we have in-depth tutorials on how to carry out that. To spare some time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an email account in Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail automatically. With our shared hosting plans, you can choose a preferred device and application to check your emails.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them to your PC or to leave them on the email server and to view them from multiple devices. The latter option will also permit different individuals to check the very same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate website on our 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 automatically set up everything in an email program of your choosing – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not need to fine-tune anything manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – just examine our comprehensive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even easier, our how-to articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
