There are a lot of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email address with your own domain will give you more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not bump into such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your computer to access your mails, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. 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 on your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

With our company, you can even set up an email account on your phone regardless of its Operating System and we’ve got detailed tutorials on how to do that. To save yourself some time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an email account in Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail automatically.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans support both email delivery protocols, so you can select either of them when you set up an account with an email software program. You can also download auto-config files for any email account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your server. Thus, you can add any email account to Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird without the need to do anything manually.

If your Virtual Private Server comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will save you time and energy if you have to set up a mailbox in any of these applications. You will also be able to send as many emails as you like – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outgoing messages.
