In case emails are an important part of your e-correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, you may be better off using an email address with your own personal domain and an email service provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that entails limitations as to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to access your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to view the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Moreover, you will be able to use a lot of other useful options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a brief issue with your Internet connection, you can still see your emails since they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to view your emails if you purchase one of our Linux shared web hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that suits your needs – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can keep the emails on the mail server in case you’ve got a firm and different employees need to have access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You will just have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you prefer to use your smartphone, we’ve included comprehensive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages support the two email retrieval protocols, so you can select either one of them when you set up an account with an email program. You can also download auto-configuration files for any account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any email account to Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird without doing anything manually. If you’re on the move all the time and you’d like to access your email messages using a mobile phone, we have included exhaustive tutorials with screenshots clarifying how to create an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the messages to one single device or you can leave them on the mail server, so as to be able to examine your messages from multiple devices and locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
If you order a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to create unlimited email accounts with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software app. This is valid irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you’ll pick during the VPS order process, as we’ll set up IMAP and POP3 email servers on the VPS in any case. You’ll be able to pick either option and, to make things even simpler, you’ll be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail – if you order the VPS with cPanel or with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You can configure email accounts on any device without any limits, even on your phone – if you commute a lot and you wish to keep in touch with friends and colleagues. With us, you can decide whether to download the emails or to leave them on the email server depending on what you’ll use the mailboxes for and on how many persons will need access to them.
