There’re many web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but using an email address with your own domain will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you will not face such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your emails, including Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.
