There’re plenty of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having an email with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email 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 POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you will be able to use any program on your computer to access your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to examine your emails if you purchase one of our Linux shared website hosting packages. Our email servers offer support for both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the server if you are running a firm and a number of employees need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll only need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. If you’d like to use your phone, we have included elaborate tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans support both email retrieval protocols, so you can opt for either of them when you set up an account with an email client. You can also download auto-configuration files for any email account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the semi-dedicated server. In this way, you can add any email account to Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without the need to do anything manually. If you’re on the move all the time and you’d like to check your emails using a smartphone, we’ve added elaborate tutorials with screenshots showing how to set up an account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our semi-dedicated server packages, you can download the emails on a single device or you can keep them on the mail server, so as to be able to view your messages from different locations and devices.
