In case you use an email with your own domain
instead of a third-party one, you will be able to use an email app such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook to check and administer your emails. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your choice to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to leave a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and check the email messages from any location. You will also be able to check old emails in case there’s an issue with your Internet connection, which is an advantage over a web-based email service.
