There’re many web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not bump into such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your computer to check your mails, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to use depending on your preferences and the purpose of the email account – you may decide to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to leave the messages on the server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your mobile phone to access your emails and we’ve included an exhaustive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages support the two email retrieval protocols, so you can select either one when you set up an account with an email program. You can also download auto-configuration files for any email account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any email account to Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without the need to do anything manually. If you are on the move all the time and you would like to view your emails using a mobile phone, we’ve included elaborate tutorials with screenshots clarifying how to create a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our semi-dedicated server packages, you can download the email messages on a single device or you can store them on the mail server, so as to be able to view your messages from different devices and locations.
