There are numerous web-based mail service providers that you can use, but having a mailbox with your own domain name will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you won’t face such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to check your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

With a website hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to use any device and any email app to see your emails. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, so you can pick either one of them when you create a mailbox in accordance with your own preference. To make things simpler, you can download a small file from your hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you set up. You can automatically set up the latter with your chosen application by simply running that file on your computer. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two services are harmonized, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given mailbox is configured.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans give you full autonomy in terms of how and where you can use any email account that you create via our Hepsia Control Panel.

You can download even our auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird and have a brand new mailbox set up automatically with your chosen email software app. You’ll not need to do anything manually. Our in-depth tutorials with step-by-step screen-caps will demonstrate to you how to create an email account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With all these devices, you can decide if the emails should be downloaded or if they should remain on the server. If you go with the latter option, you will be able to view your emails from multiple locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Our VPS plans come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software app as soon as your server is completely operational. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you will not need to set up anything manually. If your server comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will spare you time and effort if you have to set up an email account in any of these applications. You will also be able to send as many email messages as you like – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outbound messages. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you’ll be able to send/receive messages from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your smartphone.
