If you use an email with your own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email software application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and administer your email accounts. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the app of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to leave a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and access the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to view old emails if there is a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is an immense advantage over a web-based email service.
