If email messages are a key component of your online communication with business partners or family members, you might be better off using an email address with your own domain name and an email provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, rather than resorting to a web-based email service that entails limitations in regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to examine the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the mail server. Besides, you will be able to make use of a lot of other handy options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there is a temporary issue with your Internet access, you can still examine your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
