There’re lots of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your very own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you will not stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to check your mails, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting
You will be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to examine your emails if you select one of our website hosting. Our mail servers offer support for both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that meets your needs – you can download all emails to your PC or you can store the messages on the email server if you’ve got a company and different employees need to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will just 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 added comprehensive 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 Servers
You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to save them to your PC or to leave them on the server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also permit multiple people to access the same email account – if you are hosting a corporate website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an application of your preference – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you won’t have to configure anything manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply follow our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, our help articles contain step-by-step screenshots.
