If you use a mailbox with your own domain instead of a third-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and manage your emails. The advantage of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your choosing 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 decide to keep a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and access the email messages from any place. You will also be able to examine old email messages if there’s a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is a big advantage over a web-based service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting
With a website hosting service
from us, you will be able to use any device and any email application to access your email messages. We support the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, so you can opt for either one of them when you create a mailbox according to your own preferences. To make things simpler, you can download a small file from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel for each mailbox that you create. You can quickly 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 are harmonized, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given mailbox is configured.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to save them to your personal computer or to leave them on the server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also enable multiple individuals to check the exact same email account – in case you are hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an email app of your choosing – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not have to modify any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply see our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, the help articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS service
feature a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email client as soon as your VPS is ready. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you won’t need to set up anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird, which will save you time and effort when you have to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You will also be able to send out as many emails as you like – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing messages. With us, you will be able to send and receive messages from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your phone.
