In case email messages are an important part of your communication with business colleagues or relatives, it might be better to use a mailbox with your own personal domain and a provider that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, instead of using a web-based service that involves restrictions with regards to the size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to access your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to view the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with POP3, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the email server. What’s more, you will be able to make use of many other handy options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there is a brief predicament with your Internet access, you can still see your emails as they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
