If emails are an integral component of your online communication with business partners or relatives, it would be better if you used an email account with your own domain
and an email provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, instead of relying on a web-based email service that involves limitations with regard to the size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any software application – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to check the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the mail server. Also, you’ll be able to use a lot of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that if there is a brief issue with your Internet connectivity, you can still see your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
