There’re a lot of web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but having an email address with your own domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, you won’t encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your email messages, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
