There are a lot of web-based mail service providers that you can use, but having a mailbox with your own domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you will not stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to check your emails, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to check your emails if you choose one of our website hosting. Our email servers support both email retrieval protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that suits your demands – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can keep the messages on the server in case you’ve got a company and different people need to access them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will only need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you prefer to use your phone, we’ve included in-depth tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

With our VPS server plans, you’ll be able to set up an unlimited number of mailboxes and to use them with any email program on any device, as the VPSs come with a pre-configured mail server that offers support for both protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all VPS plans regardless of which hosting Control Panel you will select during the signup process. With cPanel and Hepsia, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you configure your email accounts in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird without needing to enter or modify any system information or any settings manually. You can use any other email client software to receive and send emails as well. You can even use your mobile phone to view your email correspondence when you’re on the road.
