If you use an email account with your own domain name and not a third-party one, you will be able to make use of an email app such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to check and manage your mailboxes. 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 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 protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to keep a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on numerous devices and see the messages from any location. You will also be able to view old email messages in case there’s an issue with your Internet connectivity, which is a huge advantage over a web-based email service.
