There’re plenty of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having an email account with your own domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you won’t run into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your mails, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or handheld device to examine your emails if you pick one of our Linux shared website hosting packages. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that satisfies your needs – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can leave the messages on the mail server in case you are running a company and a number of employees need to have access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You’ll just need to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve got elaborate tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting

Both protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our Linux VPS hosting packages regardless of the package or the Control Panel that you select. Each VPS includes a pre-configured email server, so you’ll be able to set up as many email addresses as you wish, to send and to receive unlimited email messages and to employ your chosen email client and even a mobile phone. In case you’ve picked cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the VPS order process, you will get access to auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these applications on your personal computer. With our VPS plans, you’ll exert absolute authority over your e-communication irrespective of where you are or what desktop or handheld device you are using.
