In case emails are a vital component of your online communication with business partners or relatives, you may be better off using an email account with your own domain name and a mail service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based service that entails limitations as to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any client – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP email 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 the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the server. Additionally, you will be able to take advantage of plenty of other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there is a temporary issue with your Internet connectivity, you can still examine your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud plan from us, you will be able to use any device and any email software application to check your emails. We support the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, so you can opt for either one when you configure a mailbox according to your personal preferences. To make things simpler, you can download a small configuration file from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel for each email account that you set up. You can automatically set up the latter with your preferred application by simply clicking on that file. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two services are harmonized, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the particular mailbox is configured.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans support the two email retrieval protocols, so you can pick either one of them when you set up a mailbox with an email software program. You can also download auto-configuration files for any mailbox that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any account to Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail without doing anything manually. If you are on the move all the time and you’d like to check your email messages using a mobile phone, we’ve added in-depth tutorials with screenshots clarifying how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our semi-dedicated server packages, you can download the emails to one single device or you can store them on the email server, so as to be able to view your messages from different locations and devices.
