If you use an email account with your own domain and not a third-party one, you will be able to make use of an email application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and manage your emails. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you opt to leave a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and see the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to access old email messages if there’s an issue with your Internet service, which is an immense advantage over web-based services.
