In case you use a mailbox with your own domain name instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email app such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to check and manage 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 delivery protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to save a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the 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 access the messages from any location. You will also be able to examine old email messages if there is an issue with your Internet access, which is a huge advantage over web-based email services.
