In case you use a mailbox with your very own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email software application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and administer your email messages. The benefit of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you set up the application of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to store a copy on the email 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 numerous devices and access the messages from any location. You will also be able to view old email messages in case there’s an issue with your Internet connectivity, which is a huge advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

Each and every hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use based on your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may want to download all emails if you’ve got a personal account and to leave the messages on the server – in case you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software app – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can use even your phone to check your emails and we’ve included an in-depth tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
