There’re numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email account with your own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you won’t have such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your computer to check your emails, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas 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 Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to download them onto your PC or to leave them on the email server and to access them from different devices. The latter option will also enable different people to check the exact same email account – if you’re hosting a company website on our servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an email software app of your choosing – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you will not need to fine-tune any settings manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any mailbox just as easily – just see our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android.
