In case you have an email with your own domain and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email app such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to check and manage your email accounts. The benefit of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email protocols that you can choose from when you set up the app of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to leave a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and view the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to access old email messages if there is a predicament with your Internet connectivity, which is a big advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
With a hosting from us, you will be able to use any device and any email application to access your emails. We offer support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, so you can pick either one of them when you create an email account in accordance with your personal preferences. To make things easier, you can download a small configuration file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you set up. You can automatically set up the latter with your preferred application by simply running that file on your computer. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two services are harmonized, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given email account is set up.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols in case you have 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 store them on your personal computer or to leave them on the email server and to view them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow different people to access the same mailbox – if you are hosting a company web site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in a software application of your preference – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you won’t have to configure any settings manually. If you have a mobile phone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just read our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything easier, our educational articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers feature a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email client as soon as your server is completely functional. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you won’t need to install anything manually. If your server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will save you time and effort when you need to set up an email account in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you like – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing emails. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you’ll be able to receive/send messages from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your mobile phone.
