In case emails are an important component of your communication with business partners or family members, you would be better off using an email account with your own personal domain name and an email provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, rather than using a web-based service that entails restrictions as to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to examine the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with POP3, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the mail server. Moreover, you’ll be able to use lots of other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a temporary problem with your Internet connectivity, you can still examine your email messages since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

With a Linux web hosting package from our company, you’ll 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 select either one when you set up an email account depending on your personal preferences. To make things simpler, 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 desired application by simply clicking on that file. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two email services go hand in hand, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any PC where the particular email account is configured.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can pick 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 decide what to do with your email messages – to download them on your personal computer or to keep them on the email server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable different individuals to check the exact same email account – in case you’re hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in a software program of your preference – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t need to fine-tune any settings manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just follow our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything easier, the help articles contain step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

With our virtual private server packages, you will be able to set up an unlimited number of email addresses and to use them with any email software program on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured email server that offers support for both protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all Virtual Private Server packages irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you’ll select during the order process. With Hepsia and cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you set up your email accounts in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without the need to enter or change any system information or any settings manually. You can make use of any other email software application to send and receive emails too. You can even use your phone to access your electronic correspondence when you’re on the move.
