If emails are an important part of your e-correspondence with business associates or family members, it would be better if you used an email address with your own personal domain name and an email service provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, instead of using a web-based email service that entails restrictions as to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any software application – Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, and so forth. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to examine the emails locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Also, you will be able to make use of a lot of other useful options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that if there is a brief issue with your Internet service, you can still examine your emails since they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
