If emails are an essential component of your correspondence with business partners or family members, you might be better off using an email account with your own domain name and an email provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, instead of relying on a web-based email service that entails limitations as to the maximum size of the attachments. In this way, you’ll be able to access your email messages on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to examine the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the email server. On top of that, you will be able to use plenty of other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a temporary problem with your Internet connectivity, you can still examine your emails as they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
