If emails are an indispensable component of your e-correspondence with business associates or relatives, it may be better to use an email account with your own domain and an email service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, instead of using a web-based email service that entails limitations with regards to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any client – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so forth. With the IMAP 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 emails will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the mail server. In addition, you’ll be able to use a lot of other useful options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that in case there is a brief issue with your Internet connection, you can still see your emails since they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
