If you have an email with your own domain name and not a third-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software app such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such applications is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to store a copy on the server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and see the messages from any place. You will also be able to check old email messages if there’s an issue with your Internet connection, which is a big advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any handheld or desktop device to examine your email messages if you get one of our cloud plans. Our mail servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can choose the one that matches your interests – you can download all email messages to your personal computer or you can keep the emails on the mail server in case you have a firm and a number of employees need to have access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-config file for a certain email account for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You will just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you’d like to use your phone, we’ve included detailed tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-driven handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both email retrieval protocols, IMAP and POP3, are available with our VPS web hosting plans irrespective of the plan or the Control Panel that you select. Each VPS includes a pre-installed email server, so you’ll be able to set up as many email accounts as you like, to receive and to send an unlimited number of emails and to use your favorite email program and even a mobile phone. In case you have selected cPanel or our Hepsia Control Panel during the VPS order process, you’ll be granted access to auto-config files for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Mail, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these applications on your computer. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you will have absolute command over your email communication regardless of where you are or what desktop or handheld device you are using.
