If you have an email address with your very own personal domain name instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email software app such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to access and administer your mailboxes. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your liking to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to keep a copy on the mail server. With the second one, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server all the time, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and view the email messages from any place. You will also be able to access old emails if there is an issue with your Internet connectivity, which is a huge advantage over a web-based service.
