There’re plenty of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your very own personal domain will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your email messages, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
