In case you use an email address with your own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email application such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to check and manage your email messages. The benefit of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you set up the application of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to save a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and see the messages from any location. You will also be able to view old email messages if there is an issue with your Internet access, which is a huge advantage over web-based email services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any mobile or desktop device to view your email messages if you order one of our shared plans. Our email servers support both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that answers your requirements – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can leave the messages on the server in case you have a firm and a number of people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You will just have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you prefer to use your smartphone, we’ve got exhaustive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers give you total independence in regards to how and where you can use any mailbox that you set up via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Since we offer support for both IMAP and POP3, you will be able to configure an email account on any desktop or handheld device irrespective of the OS in use – a desktop computer, a laptop or a smartphone. You can even download our auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird and have a new email account automatically set up with your chosen software app. You’ll not have to do anything manually. Our comprehensive tutorials with step-by-step screenshots will teach you how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With all these devices, you can decide if the email messages should be downloaded or if they should stay on the email server. If you choose the second option, you will be able to examine your emails from multiple locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS plans include a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create an email account and set it up in an email app as soon as your VPS is fully operational. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you will not have to set up anything manually. If your VPS comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will save you time and effort if you need to set up a mailbox in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send out as many emails as you wish – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which handles the outgoing emails. With our VPS plans, you will be able to receive/send email messages from any location and any device. You can set up a mailbox even on your phone.
