In case you use an email account with your very own personal domain name and not a 3rd-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 applications is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your preference to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to save a copy on the server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed locally 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 view the email messages from any location. You will also be able to see old emails in case there is an issue with your Internet connectivity, 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 allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of depending on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may want to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to keep the messages on the email server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is part of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email app – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even use your mobile phone to examine your email messages and we have added a comprehensive tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer support for both email retrieval protocols, so you can pick either one of them when you set up an email account with an email program. You can also download auto-configuration files for any mailbox that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your server. Thus, you can add any email account to Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without having to do anything manually. In case you’re on the move all the time and you’d like to access your emails using a mobile phone, we have added comprehensive tutorials with screenshots illustrating how to configure a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our semi-dedicated server packages, you can download the emails on one single device or you can leave them on the email server, so as to be able to view your emails from multiple locations and devices.
