If emails are a vital component of your e-communication with business colleagues or family members, it would be better if you used an email address with your own personal domain name
and a mail service provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, instead of relying on a web-based email service that involves limitations with regard 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 app – Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to see the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the server. Plus, you’ll be able to use many other useful options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there is a temporary issue with your Internet connectivity, you can still check your emails since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.
