In case 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 app such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to access and administer your email messages. The benefit of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your choice to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to keep a copy on the email server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and see the messages from any location. You will also be able to access old email messages if there’s an issue with your Internet service, which is a huge advantage over web-based email services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
If you get a Linux cloud package through our company, you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up with any email application. During the setup process, you can opt for POP3 or IMAP as we offer support for the two email protocols, so it will be up to you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the mail server. With our company, you can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone regardless of its OS and we have included in-depth tutorials on how to carry out that. To spare yourself some time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an account in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook automatically. With our hosting plans, you can choose a preferred device and app to check your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to download them to your personal computer or to keep them on the server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow multiple people to access the exact same mailbox – in case you are hosting a corporate website on our servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email software program of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t need to configure any settings manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – just check out our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android.
