There are a lot of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using a mailbox with your own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you will not have such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your computer to access your email messages, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

If you get a shared plan through us, you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up with any email software application. During the setup process, you can choose POP3 or IMAP as we offer support for both protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded at your end or if they will remain on the mail server. With our company, you can even set up an email account on your phone regardless of its Operating System and we have added elaborate tutorials on how to perform that. To save time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an email account in Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook automatically. With our hosting plans, you can pick a preferred device and application to check your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages support both email retrieval protocols, so you can pick either one of them when you set up a mailbox with an email software application. You can also download auto-configuration files for any account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage your server. Thus, you can add any account to Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird without having to do anything manually. If you are on the move all the time and you would like to view your emails using a smartphone, we’ve got elaborate tutorials with screen-caps explaining how to set up an account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the messages onto a single device or you can store them on the email server, so as to be able to access your emails from different devices and locations.
