If you use an email account with your own personal domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email app such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and manage your email accounts. The benefit of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to save a copy on the server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and check the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to view old emails if there’s a predicament with your Internet connection, which is an advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to view your email messages if you purchase any of our Linux shared web hosting plans. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that fulfills your interests – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can keep the messages on the email server if you’ve got a company and different employees need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a particular email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll simply have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you prefer to use your smartphone, we’ve got detailed tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-based handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

With our VPS server packages, you’ll be able to set up an unlimited number of mailboxes and to use them with any email software program on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured mail server that supports both email delivery protocols – IMAP and POP3. This is valid with all Virtual Private Server packages regardless of which Control Panel you will choose during the order procedure. With Hepsia and cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you set up your mailboxes in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without the need to enter or modify any system info or any settings manually. You can use any other email client to send and receive email messages too. You can even use your mobile phone to access your email correspondence when you are on the move.
