There are plenty of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your own domain will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to check your mails, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

Each web hosting package that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes 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 protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use based on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may decide to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to save the emails on the mail server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software app – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can use even your mobile phone to get your emails and we’ve got an in-depth tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for the two email retrieval protocols, so you can pick either of them when you set up a mailbox with an email client. You can also download auto-configuration files for any mailbox that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any email account to Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without having to do anything manually. If you are non-stop on the move and you would like to check your emails using a mobile phone, we’ve added comprehensive tutorials with screenshots illustrating how to set up an email account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our semi-dedicated server packages, you can download the emails to one single device or you can store them on the email server, so as to be able to check your emails from different devices and locations.
