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

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email delivery protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them onto your home computer or to keep them on the mail server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also enable multiple individuals to access the exact same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a corporate web site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email program of your preference – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to configure any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just check out our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android.
