In case you have an email account with your own personal domain name and not a third-party one, you’ll be able to use an email app such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and administer your mailboxes. The benefit of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the app of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to save a copy on the server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and access the email messages from any location. You will also be able to see old email messages if there is an issue with your Internet connection, which is an enormous advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to view your email messages if you order any of our shared plans. Our mail servers offer support for both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that fulfills your demands – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can store the emails on the server in case you are running a company and a number of employees need to get access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll only have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-based mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans give you full freedom in regard to where and how you can use any email account that you create through our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. As we offer support for both POP3 and IMAP, you’ll be able to set up an email account on any handheld or desktop device regardless of the Operating System in use – a desktop computer, a portable computer or a mobile phone. You can even download our auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail and have a new email account set up automatically with your chosen program. You’ll not have to do anything manually. Our comprehensive tutorials with step-by-step screenshots will show you how to create a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android phone. With any of these devices, you can choose whether the emails should be downloaded or if they should stay on the mail server. If you select the latter option, you’ll be able to examine your messages from multiple locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our VPS web hosting plans regardless of the plan or the Control Panel that you select. Each VPS includes its own pre-installed mail server, so you’ll be able to create as many mailboxes as you want, to send and to receive an unlimited number of emails and to employ your chosen email app and even a smartphone. If you’ve chosen cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the VPS order process, you’ll be given access to auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these apps on your personal computer. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will exercise total command over your electronic correspondence regardless of where you are or what device you’re using.
