POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
What types of e-mail accounts are available? Which type should you pick when you set up your e-mail program?
In case you’ve got a domain and a web hosting account for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or business purposes and to set them up with email software apps such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. During the process, you’ll be able to select one of the two most popular email retrieval protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will enable you to view all email messages, but they will stay on the server, whereas with the second one, all email messages will be downloaded on the device where the email account is set up, unless you explicitly select a copy to be stored on the server. Thus, you can choose if you would like all your email correspondence to be kept on a single device, or if you’d rather be able to examine the emails from various places. The latter option is pretty useful for firms where a number of employees working on separate machines need to gain access to a certain email account.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to view your emails if you purchase any of our web hosting
. Our email servers support both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that meets your requirements – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can store the emails on the mail server if you have a firm and different employees need to get access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You will just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you want to use your smartphone, we have added detailed tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-based mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server
plan with our company. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them on your home computer or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable different people to access the exact same email account – in case you are hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email application of your preference – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to configure anything manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just check our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things easier, our help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server
through our company, you’ll be able to create an unlimited number of mailboxes with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email application. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ll select during the VPS order procedure, as we will set up POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS in any case. You will be able to pick either option and, to make everything even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook – if you get the server with cPanel or with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. You can configure email accounts on any device without any limits, even on your mobile phone – if you commute a lot and you want to be in touch with mates and partners. With us, you can choose whether to download the emails or to save them on the email server based on what you will use the email accounts for and on how many individuals will need to be able to access them.
