If emails are a key part of your correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, you might be better off using an email account with your own domain name and an email provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, instead of using a web-based service that involves limitations with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to see the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the mail server. On top of that, you will be able to make use of many other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that if there is a temporary issue with your Internet connectivity, you can still see your emails since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
If you purchase a cloud plan from our company, you’ll be able to create email accounts with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up with any email application. During the process, you can choose IMAP or POP3 as we support both protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the server. With our company, you can even set up an email account on your phone irrespective of its Operating System and we’ve added in-depth tutorials on how to perform that. To spare some 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 services, you can pick a preferred device and software application to access your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to save them to your home computer or to leave them on the email server and to check them from different devices. The latter option will also enable multiple people to access the same email account – if you are hosting a company web site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an email app of your preference – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you will not need to fine-tune anything manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – simply check our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, the educational articles come with step-by-step screen-caps.
