In case you use an email address with your own domain name instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email software app such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird to access and manage your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can choose 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 choose to save a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and check the messages from any place. You will also be able to see old emails in case there is a predicament with your Internet connection, which is a big advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each shared hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to rely on according to your preference and the purpose of the account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to keep the messages on the server – if you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can use even your phone to get your emails and we have included a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages support the two email retrieval protocols, so you can select either one of them when you set up an email account with an email client. You can also download auto-config files for any mailbox that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any email account to Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without having to do anything manually. If you are on the move all the time and you would like to access your emails using a mobile phone, we have comprehensive tutorials with screen-caps demonstrating how to set up a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the emails onto one single device or you can leave them on the server, so as to be able to check your messages from different locations and devices.
