There’re many web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email with your own domain name will grant you more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you will not stumble upon such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your emails, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two email 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 to your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Each and every cloud website hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain name 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 protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to make use of depending on your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all emails in case you’ve got a personal account and to leave the emails on the mail server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your mobile phone to access your emails and we have included an elaborate tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them on your PC or to keep them on the mail server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also enable different individuals to access the exact same email account – in case you are hosting a corporate web 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 allow you to automatically set up everything in an email software app of your preference – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not need to configure any settings manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply see our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things simpler, the educational articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
