There’re plenty of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using an email with your own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you won’t run into such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your 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 to 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 Website Hosting
If you order a Linux website hosting from us, you will be able to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up with any email application. During the process, you can opt for POP3 or IMAP as we offer support for the two email protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded at your end or if they will remain on the email server. With us, you can even set up an email account on your smartphone irrespective of its OS and we have exhaustive tutorials on how to do that. To save yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an account in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird automatically. With our hosting plans, you can pick a preferred device and software application to check your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to download them to your PC or to leave them on the server and to view them from different devices. The second option will also enable multiple individuals to access the same email account – if you’re hosting a company web site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an email application of your choice – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to tweak anything manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just check our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything even easier, the how-to articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
