In case you use an email address with your own domain and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and administer your emails. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the application of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to save a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and access the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to check old email messages in case there’s an issue with your Internet connectivity, which is an enormous advantage over web-based services.
