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