There are numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but using a mailbox with your own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you will not come across such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to access your mailboxes, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to check your email messages if you get any of our Linux cloud hosting services. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that satisfies your requirements – you can download all email messages on your home computer or you can leave the emails on the mail server in case you have a firm and a number of people need access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll only need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you wish to use your phone, we have added detailed tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them on your personal computer or to keep them on the mail server and to view them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable different individuals to check the same email account – if you are hosting a corporate web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an email client of your choosing – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not have to tweak anything manually. If you have a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just see our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything simpler, the how-to articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
