If emails are a key part of your electronic communication with business associates or family members, it may be better to use an email address with your very own personal domain name and an email provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that entails limitations with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, and so forth. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to see the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the server. Moreover, you’ll be able to make use of plenty of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a brief problem with your Internet service, you can still see your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
With a Linux shared hosting package from us, you will be able to use any device and any email app to see your emails. We support the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, so you can opt for either one of them when you create an email account based on your own preferences. To make things simpler, you can download a small-sized file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you create. You can easily set up the latter with your preferred app by simply clicking on that file. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two services go hand in hand, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the particular email account is set up.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server package with us, you’ll be able to access your email messages from any device without any effort. If you are travelling all the time, you can check our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android smartphones, and in case you use a desktop or a portable PC, you can download our auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird and set up an email account with your desired email software app without having to do anything manually. As we support both POP3 and IMAP, you can select the email protocol that corresponds to your needs most – you may prefer to download personal emails at your end, while if you use our email services for commercial purposes, you should choose IMAP, so as to allow a lot of people to access a particular email account from different locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
If you order a virtual private server from us, you will be able to create an unlimited number of mailboxes with any domain hosted on the VPS and to set them up with any email software program. This is valid irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you will select upon signup, as we’ll set up POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS in any event. You will be able to choose either option and, to make things even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail – if you get the server with cPanel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You can configure email accounts on any device without any limitations, even on your phone – if you travel a lot and you’d like to remain in touch with friends and colleagues. With our services, you can select whether to download the email messages or to leave them on the email server depending on what you’ll use the accounts for and on how many people will need to gain access to them.
