In case you use an email address with your very own personal domain instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email software application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to access and manage your mailboxes. 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 set up the application of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to store a copy on the server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and access the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to view old emails in case there is a problem with your Internet service, which is an enormous advantage over web-based email services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each and every shared hosting package that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to use according to your preferences and the purpose of the account – you may want to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to leave the messages on the server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is built into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software application – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can use even your smartphone to check your email messages and we’ve got a detailed tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We support both, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them onto your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to view them from different devices. The second option will also allow different individuals to access the very same mailbox – in case you are hosting a corporate web site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in an email software app of your choosing – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not need to tweak anything manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply examine our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything easier, our help articles include step-by-step screenshots.
