There are many web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email account with your own domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t run into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your PC to access your email accounts, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any device to check your email messages if you pick one of our Linux shared hosting packages. Our email servers support both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that suits your interests – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can store the emails on the server in case you are running a company and a number of employees need to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You’ll simply have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be automatically set up. In case you want to use your phone, we have included exhaustive tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

Our VPS web hosting packages include a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create an email account and set it up in an email software program as soon as your VPS is ready. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not need to install anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will save you time and effort if you need to set up an email account in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send out as many email messages as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing messages. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will be able to receive/send emails from any location and any device. You can configure a mailbox even on your phone.
