In case emails are an important component of your e-correspondence with business partners or family members, it would be better to use an email account with your own personal domain name and an email service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based service that involves limitations with regard to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to check your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to view the emails at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Also, you’ll be able to use many other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a brief issue with your Internet connectivity, you can still see your email messages since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
If you purchase a shared plan 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 procedure, you can pick IMAP or POP3 as we support the two email retrieval protocols, so it will be up to you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will stay on the email server. With our company, you can even set up an email account on your mobile phone irrespective of its OS and we have elaborate tutorials on how to do that. To spare yourself some time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an email account in Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird automatically. With our hosting plans, you can select a preferred device and app to examine your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our VPS plans come with a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain name, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email client as soon as your VPS is assembled. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you will not have to install anything manually. If your VPS comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will spare you time and effort when you have to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You’ll also be able to send out as many emails as you like – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outbound messages. With us, you’ll be able to send/receive messages from any location and any device. You can configure a mailbox even on your phone.
