In case emails are an indivisible component of your correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, you might be better off using an email account with your own personal domain name and an email service provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, rather than resorting to a web-based service that involves restrictions in regards to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to check your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to see the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the email server. Moreover, you will be able to take advantage of lots of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a brief predicament with your Internet connection, you can still examine your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
