If you have an email with your very own personal domain and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email software application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and manage your emails. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your choice to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to keep a copy on the mail server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and access the email messages from any location. You will also be able to see old emails if there’s a problem with your Internet connection, which is a huge advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

Each and every web hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to rely on according to your preferences and the purpose of the account – you may want to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to store the emails on the email server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is built into our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can use even your mobile phone to access your email messages and we have an exhaustive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them on your PC or to keep them on the mail server and to check them from multiple devices. The latter option will also enable different individuals to use the same mailbox – in case you are hosting a company site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in a client of your choice – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not have to configure anything manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply check out our detailed tutorials for Android and iPhone.
