There’re lots of web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email address with your very own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP 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 emails, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

Each hosting package that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of according to your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to store the emails on the mail server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software application – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can use even your smartphone to access your emails and we’ve added a comprehensive tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

The latter option will also allow multiple individuals to check the very same email account – in case you’re hosting a corporate site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an application of your choice – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to tweak anything manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just examine our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android.
