In case email messages are a vital component of your communication with business colleagues or relatives, it would be better if you used an email account with your own personal domain name and a provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, rather than resorting to a web-based service that entails restrictions with regard to the size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to check the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the mail server. On top of that, you will be able to use lots of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a brief predicament with your Internet connectivity, you can still see your emails as they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each shared hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to rely on in accordance with your preference and the purpose of your account – you may choose to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the email server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up an email account with an email software app – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can use even your mobile phone to get your emails and we have added an elaborate tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to save them to your home computer or to keep them on the mail server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also enable multiple people to use the exact same email account – if you are hosting a corporate site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in an email program of your preference – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t need to configure anything manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just follow our detailed tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things easier, the instructional articles include step-by-step screenshots.
