In case email messages are an indivisible part of your correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, you may be better off using an email address with your own personal domain and an email provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that involves restrictions with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to check your email messages on any desktop or mobile device using any software application – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to view the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the server. Besides, you’ll be able to take advantage of plenty of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a temporary issue with your Internet connection, you can still view your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting
If you buy a Linux website hosting through our company, you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up with any email app. During the setup process, you can choose IMAP or POP3 as we support the two email delivery protocols, so it will be up to you if all email messages will be downloaded at your end or if they will stay on the server. With us, you can even set up a mailbox on your phone irrespective of its OS and we’ve got comprehensive tutorials on how to do that. To spare yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an email account in Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird automatically. With our hosting plans, you can pick a preferred device and application to check your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to save them to your PC or to leave them on the server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also permit different people to check the same mailbox – if you are hosting a company web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email program of your choosing – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you will not need to configure anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply see our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything easier, our instructional articles include step-by-step screenshots.
