In case you have an email account with your own personal domain name and not a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email application such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to check and manage your mailboxes. 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 choose from when you set up the app of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to store a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and check the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to access old emails if there’s an issue with your Internet service, which is an advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client and any mobile or desktop device to access your email messages if you purchase any of our shared hosting plans. Our mail servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that satisfies your interests – you can download all email messages onto your home computer or you can leave the emails on the email server if you have a firm and different people need to access them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop email clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You will only need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. In case you would rather use your phone, we have comprehensive tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server through us, you’ll be able to create unlimited mailboxes with any domain hosted on the VPS and to set them up with any email client software. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you will choose upon signup, as we’ll install POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS in any event. You will be able to choose either option and, to make everything even easier, you will be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook – if you order the VPS with cPanel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You can configure email accounts on any device without any limits, even on your phone – if you travel a lot and you’d like to stay in touch with friends and colleagues. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can decide whether to download the email messages or to store them on the mail server based on what you’ll use the email accounts for and on how many individuals will need to have access to them.
