There’re many web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your own domain name will provide you with more credibility if you have a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you won’t run into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your PC to check your mailboxes, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.
