In case email messages are a vital component of your correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, it might be better to use an email with your own personal domain
and an email service provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, rather than using a web-based email service that entails limitations in regards to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to check your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to check the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the mail server. Also, you will be able to use plenty of other valuable options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a brief predicament with your Internet connectivity, you can still view your emails since they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
