If you use an email address with your own domain name instead of a third-party one, you will be able to make use of an email application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and manage your email accounts. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your liking to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to leave 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 at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and see the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to check old email messages if there is an issue with your Internet access, which is an advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting plan from us, you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up with any email software app. During the setup procedure, you can choose IMAP or POP3 as we support the two protocols, so it will be up to you if all emails will be downloaded at your end or if they will remain on the email server. With our company, you can even set up an email account on your phone irrespective of its OS and we have included in-depth tutorials on how to perform that. To spare 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 services, you can select a preferred device and app to access your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them onto your PC or to keep them on the email server and to view them from multiple devices. The latter option will also enable multiple individuals to check the very same email account – in case you’re hosting a corporate web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in a software program of your choosing – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t have to modify any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply read our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even simpler, our educational articles contain step-by-step screenshots.
