POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts
Find out about the various e-mail protocol types and which type to pick when setting up a mail client.
If you’ve got a domain and a hosting account for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or business purposes and to set them up with email apps such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. During the process, you will be able to select one of the two most popular protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will enable you to see all email messages, but they will stay on the email server, while with the second one, all email messages will be downloaded to the device where the mailbox is created, unless you specifically select a copy to be saved on the server. Thus, you can choose if you want all your electronic correspondence to be stored on a single device, or if you’d rather be able to check the emails from multiple places. The latter option is rather valuable for organizations where a number of people working on different machines need to gain access to a given email account.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
If you order a Linux cloud package
from us, you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up with any email software app. During the setup process, you can select IMAP or POP3 as we offer support for the two email retrieval protocols, so it will depend on you if all email messages will be downloaded at your end or if they will stay on the email server. With our company, you can even set up an email account on your smartphone regardless of its Operating System and we’ve got in-depth tutorials on how to carry out that. To spare yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an email account in Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird automatically. With our hosting plans, you can select a preferred device and application to examine your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server
plan with our company. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to store them on your personal computer or to keep them on the email server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also allow different people to access the exact same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an email software application of your preference – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to configure any settings manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply check out our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything even easier, our how-to articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages
include a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create an email account and set it up in an email client as soon as your VPS is completely operational. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you won’t need to install anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will spare you time and energy if you have to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send as many messages as you like – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outgoing emails. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you’ll be able to receive and send messages from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your mobile phone.
