There’re a lot of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your own domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you will not run into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your emails, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your mobile 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 onto your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to check your email messages if you order any of our Linux cloud packages. Our email servers support both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your demands – you can download all emails onto your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the server if you have a company and different employees need access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-config file for a specific email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You’ll just have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d like to use your smartphone, we have elaborate tutorials on how to create an email account on an Android- or an iOS-based mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting give you complete autonomy with regard to how and where you can use any email address that you set up through our Hepsia Control Panel.

You can download even our auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook and have a brand new email account set up automatically with your preferred email software program. You will not have to do anything manually. Our comprehensive tutorials with step-by-step screen-caps will show you how to set up an email account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With any of these devices, you can choose whether the emails should be downloaded or if they should remain on the email server. If you select the second option, you will be able to examine your emails from multiple locations.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting packages include a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create an email account and set it up in an email client as soon as your VPS is fully functional. We support both IMAP and POP3 connections by default, so you will not need to install anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will spare you time and effort if you need to set up an email account in any of these apps. You will also be able to send as many messages as you want – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which handles the outgoing messages. With our packages, you’ll be able to send/receive messages from any location and any device. You can create a mailbox even on your phone.
