If emails are an indispensable part of your electronic correspondence with business associates or relatives, it may be better to use an email account with your own personal domain and a mail service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, instead of relying on a web-based email service that involves restrictions with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to view the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the email server. On top of that, you’ll be able to use lots of other useful options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a temporary issue with your Internet connection, you can still see your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

With a shared website hosting from our company, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software application to access your emails. We support the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, so you can pick either one when you configure an email account depending on your personal preference. To make things simpler, you can download a small-sized configuration file from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for each mailbox that you set up. You can swiftly set up the latter with your desired application by simply running that file on your computer. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two services complement each other, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given mailbox is configured.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to store them on your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also permit different people to access the same mailbox – in case 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 permit you to automatically set up everything in an email client of your choice – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to fine-tune any settings manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just check our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things simpler, the help articles include step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

With our VPS server plans, you will be able to set up unlimited email accounts and to use them with any email client on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured email server that offers support for both email protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all VPS plans regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ll select during the VPS order procedure. With cPanel and Hepsia, you’ll be even able to download auto-configuration files, which will help you configure your email accounts in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without the need to enter or change any system info and any settings manually. You can use any other email software app to receive and send email messages too. You can even use your smartphone to access your electronic correspondence when you are on the road.
