If you have a domain and a hosting plan for it, you will be able to create email accounts for personal or business purposes and to set them up with programs such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose one of the two most popular email protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to examine all messages, but they will stay on the mail server, whereas with the second protocol, all messages will be downloaded to the device where the mailbox is created, unless you specifically choose a copy to be left on the server. In this way, you can choose if you would like all your email correspondence to be stored on a single device, or if you’d rather be able to access the email messages from different locations. The latter alternative is quite convenient for organizations where a number of employees working on different computers need access to a specific email account.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to view your email messages if you order one of our Linux cloud plans
. Our mail servers support both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can select the one that fulfills your demands – you can download all emails on your home computer or you can keep the messages on the server in case you’ve got a firm and a number of people need to get access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail. You’ll just need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be automatically set up. If you prefer to use your smartphone, we’ve included detailed tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-based handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans support the two email retrieval protocols, so you can choose either of them when you set up an account with an email app. You can also download auto-config files for any account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. In this way, you can add any email account to Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird without the need to do anything manually. If you’re non-stop on the move and you would like to view your email messages using a smartphone, we have added detailed tutorials with screen-caps showing how to configure an account on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the email messages onto a single device or you can leave them on the mail server, so as to be able to access your emails from multiple locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS plans
come with a pre-installed mail server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email client as soon as your VPS is assembled. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to set up anything manually. If your VPS comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will save you time and effort if you have to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You will also be able to send as many email messages as you wish – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outbound emails. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you’ll be able to send and receive email messages from any location and any device. You can configure an email account even on your smartphone.
