If you have an email with your own personal domain and not a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email software application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and manage your mailboxes. The benefit of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your preference to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to leave a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and view the messages from any location. You’ll also be able to view old emails in case there is an issue with your Internet access, which is a big advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

If you get a Linux shared hosting from our company, you will be able to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up with any email app. During the setup process, you can opt for IMAP or POP3 as we support the two email delivery protocols, so it will depend on you if all email messages will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the mail server. With us, you can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone irrespective of its Operating System and we’ve included elaborate tutorials on how to perform that. To spare yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an account in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird automatically. With our hosting plans, you can select a preferred device and app to examine your email messages.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them onto your home computer or to keep them on the email server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable different people to check the very same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an email software app of your choice – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you will not have to modify any settings manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply check our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even easier, our help articles contain step-by-step screenshots.
