If you have a mailbox with your own domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to access and administer your email accounts. The advantage 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 select from when you set up the application of your preference to access your email account – 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 keep a copy on the mail server. With the second one, 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 see the messages from any location. You will also be able to examine old emails in case there’s a problem with your Internet access, which is a huge advantage over a web-based email service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
With a cloud hosting plan from our company, you will be able to use any device and any email application to see your emails. We support the POP3 and IMAP protocols, so you can select either one when you configure a mailbox according to your own preference. To make things simpler, you can download a small-sized file from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for each email account that you create. You can quickly set up the latter with your preferred application by simply clicking on that file. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two services complement each other, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any PC where the particular email account is configured.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them on your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to view them from multiple devices. The latter option will also enable multiple people to check the exact same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate web site 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 allow you to automatically set up everything in a client of your choosing – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you won’t need to configure any settings manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just see our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even easier, the educational articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting plans feature a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain name, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software app as soon as your Virtual Private Server is fully functional. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not have to set up anything manually. If your VPS comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will spare you time and energy when you need to set up an email account in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send as many emails as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which handles the outbound emails. With our VPS packages, you’ll be able to send and receive emails from any location and any device. You can create an email account even on your mobile phone.
