There’re numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you will not encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your computer to access your mailboxes, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to use any email client software and any device to check your emails if you purchase any of our Linux shared hosting plans. Our mail servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that suits your requirements – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can store the emails on the server if you are running a firm and different people need to get access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You’ll just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you prefer to use your phone, we’ve got detailed tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you use a semi-dedicated server package with us, you’ll be able to access your emails from any device with ease. If you are non-stop on the road, you can examine our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android mobile phones, and if you use a laptop or a desktop computer, you can download our auto-config files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird and set up a mailbox with your chosen client without needing to do anything manually. As we support both IMAP and POP3, you can select the email protocol that fulfills your interests most – you may prefer to download personal emails locally at your end, while in case you use our email services for commercial purposes, you should opt for IMAP, so as to allow lots of individuals to access a particular mailbox from separate devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers feature a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email program as soon as your server is assembled. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not have to install anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will save you time and energy if you have to set up an email account in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send out as many messages as you wish – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which handles the outbound emails. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will be able to receive/send emails from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your mobile phone.
