In case emails are an indispensable part of your online communication with business partners or family members, you would be better off using an email with your own domain name and a mail service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, instead of using a web-based email service that entails limitations with regard to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to view the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the server. Also, you will be able to take advantage of many other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a temporary issue with your Internet access, you can still examine your emails since they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
