There are many web-based mail service providers that you can use, but using an email with your own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t bump into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your email messages, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account 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 email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, 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
If you get a Linux cloud service through our company, you will be able to create email accounts with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up with any email application. During the setup process, you can select IMAP or POP3 as we support the two email protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the mail server. With us, you can even set up an email account on your phone irrespective of its OS and we have detailed tutorials on how to perform that. To save yourself some time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an account in Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird automatically. With our hosting plans, you can pick a preferred device and software app to examine your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them to your home computer or to leave them on the mail server and to view them from different devices. The second option will also permit multiple people to use the very same mailbox – if you are hosting a company web site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email software program of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not have to tweak anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply see our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, our help articles contain step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS service include a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software application as soon as your VPS is completely functional. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to set up anything manually. If your VPS comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will save you time and energy when you have to set up an account in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you want – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which handles the outgoing emails. With our plans, you’ll be able to send/receive email messages from any location and any device. You can configure an email account even on your smartphone.
