POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
What kinds of e-mail accounts are out there? Which type should you select when you configure your e-mail program?
If you have an email with your own domain and not a third-party one, you will be able to use an email app such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and manage your email messages. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you set up the app of your choosing to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to keep a copy on the mail server. With the second protocol, the email 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 numerous devices and access the email messages from any place. You will also be able to view old emails if there is an issue with your Internet connectivity, which is an immense advantage over web-based email services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each and every shared web hosting
plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to rely on according to your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may choose to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to save the emails on the server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your mobile phone to check your email messages and we have included a detailed tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
plans offer support for both email retrieval protocols, so you can select either of them when you set up a mailbox with an email software app. You can also download auto-configuration files for any mailbox that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the semi-dedicated server. In this way, you can add any email account to Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without having to do anything manually. In case you are on the move all the time and you would like to access your email messages using a smartphone, we’ve got comprehensive tutorials with screen-caps clarifying how to create an email account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our services, you can download the email messages to a single device or you can leave them on the server, so as to be able to access your email messages from multiple locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting services
come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software app as soon as your Virtual Private Server is fully functional. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you won’t need to set up anything manually. If your server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird, which will spare you time and effort when you have to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send out as many email messages as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outgoing messages. With our VPS packages, you’ll be able to receive and send emails from any location and any device. You can create an email account even on your mobile phone.
