In case emails are an important component of your correspondence with business associates or family members, it would be better to use a mailbox with your very own personal domain and an email provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, instead of using a web-based email service that entails restrictions as to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to check your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to view the emails at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the mail server. Also, you will be able to make use of a lot of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there’s a brief problem with your Internet connectivity, you can still check your emails since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting
Each and every hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to use in accordance with your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may want to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to save the messages on the mail server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email client – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your mobile phone to get your emails and we’ve included an exhaustive tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them onto your personal computer or to keep them on the server and to view them from multiple devices. The latter option will also allow multiple people to access the exact same mailbox – in case you are hosting a corporate website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in a software program of your preference – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to tweak anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just follow our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even simpler, our educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
