There are numerous web-based email service providers that you can use, but using an email with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you will not have such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your computer to access your email messages, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to check your emails if you select any of our web hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that fulfills your interests – you can download all emails to your PC or you can store the messages on the mail server if you are running a company and different employees need to have access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you would like to use your smartphone, we have added exhaustive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to download them on your home computer or to keep them on the server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also permit different people to access the exact same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an application of your choosing – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not need to modify anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply read our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything even easier, our how-to articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
