There’re a lot of web-based email providers that you can use, but using a mailbox with your own domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t have such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, while 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

Our semi-dedicated server packages support both email retrieval protocols, so you can choose either of them when you set up an account with an email app. You can also download auto-configuration files for any email account that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any email account to Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without the need to do anything manually. If you’re non-stop on the move and you would like to check your emails using a smartphone, we have added elaborate tutorials with screenshots showing how to set up an account on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. With our services, you can download the emails onto a single device or you can leave them on the server, so as to be able to access your messages from multiple locations and devices.
