In case emails are an integral part of your e-communication with business colleagues or family members, you would be better off using a mailbox with your very own personal domain and a provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that involves restrictions with regards to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to view the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the server. Furthermore, you will be able to use plenty of other useful options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that in case there is a brief predicament with your Internet service, you can still see your emails since they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to view your email messages if you get any of our Linux web hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that meets your requirements – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can store the emails 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 certain email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll simply need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. If you wish to use your phone, we’ve got comprehensive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them on your home computer or to leave them on the server and to view them from different devices. The second option will also enable different individuals to check the exact same email account – in case you’re hosting a company web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an application of your preference – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not need to tweak any settings manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply follow our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, the how-to articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
Both email delivery protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our Linux VPS irrespective of the package or the hosting Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS includes a pre-configured mail server, so you will be able to set up as many email addresses as you like, to receive and to send an unlimited number of emails and to employ your desired email client and even a smartphone. In case you’ve chosen cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the signup process, you will have access to auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these apps on your personal computer. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you’ll exert absolute control over your email correspondence no matter where you are or what device you’re using.
