In case you have an email account with your own domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email software application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to access and administer your email accounts. 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 retrieval protocols that you can select from when you set up the app of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide 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 email account on multiple devices and view the messages from any location. You’ll also be able to examine old emails if there’s an issue with your Internet connectivity, which is a big advantage over a web-based email service.
