If you have an email account with your very own personal domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software application such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to access and manage your emails. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you opt to keep a copy on the email server. With the second one, the email 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 multiple devices and view the messages from any place. You’ll also be able to see old email messages in case there is a problem with your Internet connection, which is an enormous advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each shared website hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use depending on your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the mail server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email app – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your mobile phone to get your emails and we have added a detailed tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to store them on your PC or to leave them on the email server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also permit different people to check the same email account – in case you are hosting a corporate site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in an email application of your choice – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook, so you won’t need to modify any settings manually. If you have a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – just see our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything easier, the instructional articles contain step-by-step screenshots.
