If emails are an integral component of your communication with business associates or family members, it might be better to use an email account with your very own personal domain name
and an email provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, instead of using a web-based service that entails limitations with regard to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your email messages on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to view the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the server. Moreover, you’ll be able to make use of plenty of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a brief problem with your Internet connection, you can still check your email messages since they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
