There’re lots of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but having an email with your own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you won’t bump into such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your computer to access your email messages, including Apple Mail, Outlook 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 locally at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to examine your email messages if you opt for any of our shared web hosting plans. Our mail servers support both email retrieval protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fits your requirements – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the server in case you are running a firm and a number of people need access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will just need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you would rather use your phone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials on how to create an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use a semi-dedicated server package with our company, you will be able to view your emails from any device without any difficulty. If you’re on the road all the time, you can see our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android phones, and in case you have a laptop or a desktop PC, you can download our auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook and set up an email account with your preferred email app without having to do anything manually. Since we support both IMAP and POP3, you can select the email retrieval protocol that fits your interests most – you may prefer to download personal email messages at your end, whereas if you use our email services for commercial purposes, you should select IMAP, so as to allow plenty of people to access a particular mailbox from separate computers.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both email protocols, IMAP and POP3, are offered with our VPS hosting plans irrespective of the package or the hosting Control Panel that you pick. Each VPS includes its own pre-installed email server, so you will be able to set up as many mailboxes as you wish, to receive and to send an unlimited number of emails and to use your chosen email app and even a mobile phone. If you’ve chosen cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll be bestowed with access to auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these applications on your PC. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will exercise total control over your email communication no matter where you are or what desktop or handheld device you are using.
