In case you use a mailbox with your very own personal domain instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email software application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to access and administer your email accounts. The advantage of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to leave a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and view the email messages from any location. You will also be able to see old email messages in case there is an issue with your Internet connection, which is an advantage over web-based email services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
If you buy a Linux shared website hosting through us, you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up with any email app. During the process, you can opt for IMAP or POP3 as we support the two email delivery protocols, so it will be up to you if all email messages will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the email server. With us, you can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone irrespective of its OS and we’ve included comprehensive tutorials on how to carry out that. To save yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an email account in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook automatically. With our services, you can pick a preferred device and application to view your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them on your PC or to keep them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow different people to access the exact same mailbox – if you’re hosting a company web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. 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 a software program of your choice – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not need to tweak any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just check our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything easier, the how-to articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
