If 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 application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and manage your email accounts. The benefit of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to keep a copy on the email server. With the second one, the 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 email messages from any place. You will also be able to view old email messages if there’s a problem with your Internet connection, which is an immense advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any device to examine your email messages if you choose any of our Linux cloud hosting plans. Our mail servers support both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that corresponds to your interests – you can download all email messages to your personal computer or you can store the messages on the server if you’ve got a firm and different people need to be able to access them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will simply have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. If you’d like to use your phone, we have included in-depth tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-powered device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to save them to your PC or to keep them on the mail server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also enable different individuals to check the very same mailbox – if you are hosting a company website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an email program of your preference – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to configure anything manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just follow our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things even easier, the educational articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
With our VPS server packages, you’ll be able to create an unlimited number of mailboxes and to use them with any email app on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-installed email server that supports both email retrieval protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all VPS plans no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick during the order process. With cPanel and Hepsia, you will even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you set up your mailboxes in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without entering or modifying any system information and any settings manually. You can make use of any other email application to send and receive email messages as well. You can even use your phone to access your email correspondence when you are on the move.
