In case you use an email address with your own domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software app such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to check and manage your mailboxes. 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 email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to store a copy on the email server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and view the messages from any place. You will also be able to view old emails in case there is a predicament with your Internet connection, which is a big advantage over web-based services.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Hosting

Each hosting package that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain hosted in 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 use in accordance with your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all emails in case you’ve got a personal account and to save the messages on the mail server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email app – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your smartphone to access your emails and we have added a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
