If email messages are an indispensable part of your communication with business partners or family members, you might be better off using an email account with your own personal domain and an email provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that involves limitations in regards to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you will be able to access your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any software – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to view the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the server. Plus, you’ll be able to take advantage of plenty of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that in case there’s a temporary problem with your Internet access, you can still see your email messages since they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
