If you have an email with your very own personal domain name and not a third-party one, you will be able to use an email software application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to access and manage your emails. The benefit of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the app of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to store a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed 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 see the email messages from any location. You will also be able to see old email messages if there is an issue with your Internet access, which is a huge advantage over web-based email services.
