If you’ve got a domain and a hosting account for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email apps such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. During the process, you’ll be able to pick one of the two most popular email protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first one will allow you to check all messages, but they will stay on the mail server, whereas with the second one, all messages will be downloaded to the device where the mailbox is configured, unless you explicitly select a copy to be left on the server. Thus, you can choose if you want all your electronic communication to be kept on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to view the emails from various locations. The latter option is very valuable for firms where different employees working on different computers need access to a given email account.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each shared hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to rely on depending on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may choose to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to leave the emails on the server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software program – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your mobile phone to view your email messages and we have added an in-depth 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 pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them onto your personal computer or to keep them on the email server and to access them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable different people to access the exact same email account – in case you’re hosting a company web site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in a client of your choosing – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not need to tweak anything manually. In case you have a smartphone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – simply see our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things simpler, our educational articles include step-by-step screenshots.
