In case email messages are an indispensable component of your electronic correspondence with business partners or family members, you would be better off using an email with your own domain name and an email service provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, rather than resorting to a web-based service that involves restrictions with regards to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any client – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to view the emails at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Plus, you will be able to take advantage of lots of other handy options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there is a temporary problem with your Internet connectivity, you can still see your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any mobile or desktop device to view your email messages if you get any of our Linux cloud hosting packages. Our mail servers support both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that fits your demands – you can download all email messages on your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the email 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 mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will only have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you wish to use your smartphone, we have added exhaustive tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-based mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them onto your home computer or to leave them on the mail server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also permit different people to access the same email account – if you’re hosting a company website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an email software application of your choice – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not have to modify anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply examine our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything simpler, our how-to articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
