If you have a mailbox with your very own personal domain name instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to access and manage your email accounts. The benefit of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email protocols that you can choose from when you set up the app of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to keep a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and view the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to view old emails if there is a predicament with your Internet connectivity, which is a huge advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to examine your emails if you pick one of our cloud website hosting plans. Our mail servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fits your demands – you can download all email messages on your home computer or you can keep the emails on the server if you have a company and a number of employees need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll only have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you want to use your phone, we have added elaborate tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-based device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them to your personal computer or to keep them on the email server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow multiple individuals to access the very same mailbox – if you are hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an email software app of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not have to fine-tune anything manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply read our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even easier, the how-to articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email retrieval protocols, IMAP and POP3, are offered with our VPS plans irrespective of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you select. Each VPS includes its own pre-installed email server, so you’ll be able to create as many email accounts as you want, to receive and to send an unlimited number of messages and to employ your favorite email client software and even a mobile phone. In case you’ve picked our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or cPanel upon signup, you’ll be given access to auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your computer. With our packages, you’ll have total command over your electronic communication regardless of where you are or what device you’re using.
