In case you have an email with your own domain and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email software app such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and administer your email accounts. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your liking to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to leave a copy on the server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and view the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to check old email messages in case there’s a predicament with your Internet service, which is an enormous advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

Each and every web hosting plan that we offer will enable 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 IMAP and the POP3 email protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to make use of based on your preferences and the purpose of the email account – you may want to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to keep the emails on the server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is included in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software program – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your mobile phone to view your emails and we have included a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
