In case you use a mailbox with your own domain name instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email software application such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to check and manage your emails. The benefit of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to store a copy on the email server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and access the messages from any place. You will also be able to view old email messages if there is a problem with your Internet access, which is a big advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any device to access your email messages if you select one of our cloud hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that satisfies your demands – you can download all emails onto your home computer or you can keep the emails on the mail server in case you have a firm and a number of employees need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You will only have to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you would like to use your smartphone, we have comprehensive tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for the two email delivery protocols, so you can opt for either one of them when you set up a mailbox with an email software program. You can also download auto-config files for any mailbox that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your server. In this way, you can add any account to Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird without the need to do anything manually. In case you’re non-stop on the move and you would like to check your email messages using a smartphone, we have added in-depth tutorials with screen-caps demonstrating how to create an account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the emails onto one single device or you can keep them on the mail server, so as to be able to check your email messages from different locations and devices.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

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