In case email messages are an essential component of your e-correspondence with business partners or relatives, it would be better if you used a mailbox with your own domain name
and an email provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, rather than resorting to a web-based email service that entails limitations in regards to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your mails on any desktop or mobile device using any software program – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to examine the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with POP3, all emails will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the email server. In addition, you’ll be able to make use of lots of other handy options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there’s a temporary problem with your Internet connection, you can still examine your email messages as they will be on your desktop or handheld device.
