If you use an email account with your very own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email application such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to check and administer your emails. The benefit of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you set up the app of your preference to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to keep a copy on the mail server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and view the messages from any location. You will also be able to examine old email messages if there is a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is an immense advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
With a Linux shared web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software app to view your emails. We support the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, so you can opt for either one of them when you set up an email account based on your own preference. To make things simpler, you can download a small-sized configuration file from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for each email account that you create. You can effortlessly set up the latter with your preferred app by simply running that file on your computer. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two services go hand in hand, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any PC where the given mailbox is configured.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting packages include a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email program as soon as your Virtual Private Server is fully functional. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to install anything manually. If your server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will save you time and energy when you have to set up an account in any of these applications. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you wish – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outgoing emails. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you’ll be able to receive/send messages from any location and any device. You can create an email account even on your smartphone.
