In case you use a mailbox with your own personal domain and not a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software app such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to access and manage your mailboxes. The benefit of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to keep a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and see the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to see old emails in case there is a problem with your Internet service, which is a big advantage over web-based email services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

With a Linux web hosting from our company, you will be able to use any device and any email software app to check your email messages. We support the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, so you can select either of them when you create an email account depending on your own preferences. To make things easier, you can download a small-sized configuration file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you set up. You can easily set up the latter with your desired application by simply running that file on your computer. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two services go hand in hand, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given email account is configured.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting give you total independence in terms of where and how you can use any email account that you set up via our Hepsia Control Panel. Since we offer support for both POP3 and IMAP, you will be able to configure a mailbox on any desktop or mobile device regardless of the Operating System in use – a desktop PC, a portable computer or a smartphone. You can download even our auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail and have a brand new email account automatically set up with your chosen email client. You’ll not have to do anything manually. Our exhaustive tutorials with step-by-step screen-caps will show you how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With all these devices, you can decide if the email messages should be downloaded or if they should remain on the mail server. If you select the latter option, you will be able to access your email messages from different locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

Our Linux VPS feature a pre-installed mail 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 server is fully operational. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to install anything manually. If your server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will save you time and effort if you need to set up an account in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you like – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outbound messages. With our packages, 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.
