In case emails are an essential component of your communication with business partners or family members, it would be better if you used an email account with your own personal domain name and a mail service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that involves limitations with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to check your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to examine the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the email server. Plus, you’ll be able to make use of many other useful options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a brief problem with your Internet connection, you can still see your email messages since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Each cloud web hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to rely on depending on your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to save the messages on the server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is part of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even use your phone to view your email messages and we have added an in-depth tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to store them on your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to view them from multiple devices. The second option will also permit multiple individuals to access the very same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an email application of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not need to tweak any settings manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just check our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android.
