In case you use an email address with your own domain
and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email app such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to access and manage your email messages. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two different email delivery protocols that you can choose from when you set up the app of your liking to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to keep a copy on the email server. With the second one, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and check the messages from any location. You’ll also be able to view old emails in case there is a predicament with your Internet connectivity, which is an advantage over web-based services.
