There are many web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having a mailbox with your very own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you will not experience such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to access your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your mobile device. The difference between the two email 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 onto 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 Shared Hosting
Each and every shared hosting package that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to make use of in accordance with your preferences and the purpose of your account – you may want to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to store the emails on the server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is built into our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email program – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can use even your smartphone to examine your email messages and we’ve included a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them on your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also allow multiple people to access the very same email account – in case you are hosting a company site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in a software application of your choosing – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t need to modify anything manually. If you have a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just read our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything even easier, our educational articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
