In case email messages are a vital part of your electronic communication with business associates or family members, it would be better to use a mailbox with your own domain name and a mail service provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based service that involves limitations with regards to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to check your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to see the emails at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the email server. In addition, you will be able to make use of many other useful options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a temporary issue with your Internet service, you can still see your email messages as they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use any email client software and any handheld or desktop device to view your email messages if you buy any of our Linux shared website hosting packages. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that meets your interests – you can download all email messages onto your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the server in case you are running a firm and a number of employees need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll only need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you’d rather use your smartphone, we have elaborate tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages give you total freedom with regard to how and where you can use any mailbox that you create through our Hepsia Control Panel. Since we offer support for both IMAP and POP3, you’ll be able to configure a mailbox on any desktop or handheld device irrespective of the OS in use – a desktop computer, a laptop or a mobile phone. You can even download our auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird and have a brand-new mailbox set up automatically with your desired email application. You will not need to do anything manually. Our exhaustive tutorials with step-by-step screenshots will teach you how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With any of these devices, you can decide whether the emails should be downloaded or if they should remain on the mail server. If you select the second option, you will be able to view your email messages from multiple locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting packages come with a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain name, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software application as soon as your server is completely functional. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not need to set up anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will save you time and effort if you need to set up a mailbox in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send out as many messages as you like – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outbound emails. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you’ll be able to receive/send emails from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your mobile phone.
