There are lots of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your very own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you will not run into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to check your emails, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the email server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
