If emails are an indispensable part of your correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, it would be better to use an email address with your very own personal domain name and a mail service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, instead of relying on a web-based service that entails restrictions with regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to check your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to check 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 to the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the mail server. Plus, you’ll be able to use a lot of other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there’s a temporary issue with your Internet connection, you can still examine your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to check your emails if you select one of our Linux shared website hosting packages. Our email servers support both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can leave the emails on the server if you’ve got a firm and different employees need access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You will just need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you would like to use your phone, we have added elaborate tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to download them onto your home computer or to leave them on the email server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also allow multiple individuals to access the very same mailbox – in case you are hosting a corporate website on our 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 an email software program of your choosing – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you won’t have to fine-tune anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just check our in-depth tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything even simpler, our help articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
