In case you use an email address with your very own personal domain and not a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to access and manage your email accounts. The benefit of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to leave a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and access the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to check old email messages in case there is a problem with your Internet access, which is a huge advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

Each web hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to use according to your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to leave the messages on the mail server – if you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is included in our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can use even your mobile phone to get your email messages and we’ve added an exhaustive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
