If you use an email account with your very own personal domain name instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email software application 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 calendars and address books. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your choice 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 choose to save a copy on the 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 view the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to check old emails in case there is a predicament with your Internet connection, which is an advantage over web-based email services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to view your emails if you select one of our Linux shared hosting. Our mail servers support both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that suits your needs – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can store the messages on the email server if you are running a company and a number of people need to have access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You’ll simply need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. If you wish to use your phone, we have added exhaustive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer support for both email delivery protocols, so you can choose either one when you set up a mailbox with an email application. You can also download auto-config files for any account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the semi-dedicated server. In this way, you can add any email account to Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without needing to do anything manually. If you’re non-stop on the move and you would like to check your emails using a smartphone, we have included elaborate tutorials with screen-caps illustrating how to create an email account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the emails on one single device or you can keep them on the mail server, so as to be able to access your messages from different locations and devices.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from us, you will be able to create unlimited mailboxes with any domain hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software application. This is valid irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you will choose during the signup procedure, as we will set up IMAP and POP3 email servers on the VPS in all cases. You will be able to choose either option and, to make everything even simpler, you will be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail – if you get the server with cPanel or with our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up email accounts on any device without any restrictions, even on your phone – if you travel a lot and you want to remain in touch with friends and associates. With our services, you can decide whether to download the email messages or to leave them on the mail server based on what you’ll use the mailboxes for and on how many persons will need to gain access to them.
