If you have a mailbox with your very own personal domain instead of a third-party one, you will be able to make use of an email application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you set up the app of your choosing 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 email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and view the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to see old email messages if there is a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is an immense advantage over web-based services.
