In case email messages are an indivisible component of your electronic correspondence with business partners or relatives, it may be better to use an email account with your own domain name
and a provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, rather than using a web-based service that entails limitations with regards to the size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so forth. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to see the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the mail server. In addition, you will be able to use a lot of other handy options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there is a brief predicament with your Internet connectivity, you can still see your email messages as they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
