If you use an email address with your own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to make use of an email software application such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail to access and administer your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the app of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you choose to keep 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 account on numerous devices and view the messages from any location. You will also be able to see old emails in case there is a predicament with your Internet connection, which is a big advantage over a web-based service.
