There’re numerous web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. 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 program on your PC to check your email messages, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile device. 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 to 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 Hosting

Each hosting package that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to make use of according to your preference and the purpose of your account – you may decide to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to save the emails on the server – if you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our custom Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small file, so as to set up an email account with an email program – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can use even your phone to check your emails and we have added an exhaustive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
