If you have an email account with your very own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software application such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird to access and administer your email accounts. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email protocols that you can choose from when you set up the app of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to leave a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and check the messages from any location. You will also be able to check old emails if there’s a predicament with your Internet connectivity, which is an enormous advantage over a web-based service.

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 process, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use based on your preference and the purpose of the account – you may decide to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to leave the emails on the email server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up an email account with an email application – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even use your smartphone to access your emails and we’ve added a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
