In case email messages are a fundamental component of your correspondence with business partners or family members, it may be better to use a mailbox with your own personal domain and an email service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based email service that entails restrictions with regard to the size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to access your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any client – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so forth. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to examine the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the email server. Additionally, you’ll be able to take advantage of many other useful options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a brief issue with your Internet connection, you can still see your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any handheld or desktop device to access your emails if you opt for any of our hosting. Our mail servers support both protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that matches your demands – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can leave the emails on the mail server if you have a company and a number of employees need to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a given email account for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You’ll just have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. If you’d like to use your smartphone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to save them to your PC or to leave them on the email server and to check them from multiple devices. The latter option will also enable multiple people to use the exact same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a company 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 enable you to set up everything automatically in an email software application of your preference – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not need to fine-tune anything manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply follow our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things easier, the instructional articles include step-by-step screen-caps.
