In case emails are an integral part of your online correspondence with business associates or relatives, it may be better to use an email account with your own domain and an email provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that involves limitations with regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to access your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to view the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the mail server. Besides, you will be able to make use of a lot of other useful options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a brief issue with your Internet connectivity, you can still examine your email messages since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to check your email messages if you select any of our Linux shared web hosting. Our mail servers support both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all email messages to your PC or you can leave the messages on the server if you’ve got a firm and a number of people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You’ll just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d like to use your phone, we’ve added comprehensive tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-based device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them on your personal computer or to keep them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also allow different people to use the exact same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in a software application of your choosing – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t need to configure anything manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just follow our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even simpler, our educational articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
