In case you have an email account with your own domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email software app such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to check and administer your emails. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you opt to save a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and check the messages from any place. You will also be able to view old emails if there’s a predicament with your Internet service, which is a huge advantage over a web-based service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to examine your email messages if you get any of our Linux web hosting. Our email servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that satisfies your demands – you can download all emails onto your home computer or you can store the messages on the server if you have a firm and a number of employees need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will just have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you’d like to use your phone, we have included in-depth tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans offer support for both email retrieval protocols, so you can opt for either one when you set up a mailbox with an email application. You can also download auto-config files for any mailbox that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage your server. Thus, you can add any account to Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without needing to do anything manually. If you’re non-stop on the move and you would like to view your emails using a smartphone, we have included exhaustive tutorials with screenshots teaching how to create an email account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our services, you can download the messages onto one single device or you can store them on the mail server, so as to be able to view your messages from different devices and locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server through us, you’ll be able to create unlimited email accounts with any domain hosted on the server and to set them up with any email program. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ll pick upon signup, since we will install POP3 and IMAP mail servers on the VPS in any case. You’ll be able to choose either option and, to make things even simpler, you’ll be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail – if you order the VPS with cPanel or with our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. You can configure mailboxes on any device without any limits, even on your smartphone – if you travel a lot and you wish to keep in touch with buddies and associates. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can select whether to download the email messages or to store them on the server depending on what you will use the mailboxes for and on how many persons will need to have access to them.
