In case you use an email with your own personal domain name and not a third-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software application such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to access and manage your email messages. The benefit of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you configure the app of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to store a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and see the email messages from any place. You will also be able to access old email messages if there is a predicament with your Internet service, which is a huge advantage over a web-based service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or mobile device to check your emails if you get any of our Linux hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that suits your needs – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can store the messages on the mail server if you have a company and a number of people need to have access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will simply need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. If you’d like to use your phone, we have included elaborate tutorials on how to set up a mailbox 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 protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them onto your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable multiple individuals to use the same mailbox – in case you are hosting a company web site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an application of your preference – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not have to tweak anything manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply check our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even simpler, the instructional articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our VPS hosting plans regardless of the package or the Control Panel that you select. Each VPS comes with its own pre-installed mail server, so you’ll be able to create as many mailboxes as you want, to send and to receive an unlimited number of emails and to use your desired email app and even a smartphone. In case you have picked cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the VPS order process, you’ll be provided with access to auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these apps on your PC. With our packages, you will exert full command over your electronic correspondence no matter where you are or what handheld or desktop device you’re using.
