If you have an email address with your own personal domain and not a third-party one, you will be able to use an email application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to access and manage your mailboxes. The benefit of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email protocols that you can select from when you set up the application of your choice to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to leave a copy on the server. With the second one, 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 view the email messages from any place. You will also be able to view old email messages in case there’s a problem with your Internet connection, which is a huge advantage over web-based email services.
