There’re plenty of web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email with your own domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t experience such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your personal computer to check your email messages, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to access your emails if you choose any of our Linux hosting packages. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can select the one that answers your interests – you can download all email messages onto your PC or you can keep the messages on the server if you’ve got a firm and a number of people need to be able to access them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a certain email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You will only have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you wish to use your smartphone, we’ve added detailed tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS

With our virtual private server plans, you’ll be able to create an unlimited number of mailboxes and to use them with any email application on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-installed mail server that supports both protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all VPS plans regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose during the order procedure. With cPanel and Hepsia, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files, which will help you set up your mailboxes in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook without needing to enter or modify any system information and any settings manually. You can use any other email software application to receive and send email messages as well. You can even use your smartphone to check your email correspondence when you are on the move.
