There are plenty of web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email account with your own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you won’t have such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your email messages, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. 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 server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud plan from our company, you’ll be able to use any device and any email app to see your emails. We support the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, so you can pick either one of them when you configure a mailbox 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 create. You can swiftly set up the latter with your chosen app by simply clicking on that file. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two email 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 PC where the particular email account is set up.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them onto your personal computer or to leave them on the email server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also allow multiple individuals to access the very same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to set up everything automatically in an email app of your choice – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you won’t have to fine-tune any settings manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just examine our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even simpler, our how-to articles include step-by-step screenshots.
