If emails are a vital component of your e-correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, you might be better off using an email address with your own domain
and a mail service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based service that entails restrictions in regards to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your emails on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, etc. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to view the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, while with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Also, you’ll be able to take advantage of lots of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that if there is a temporary predicament with your Internet connection, you can still view your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
