If you’ve got a domain and a hosting package for it, you will be able to create email accounts for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email apps such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. During the procedure, you will be able to pick one of the two most popular email protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to access all email messages, but they will stay on the mail server, whereas with the second one, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device where the mailbox is set up, unless you explicitly choose a copy to be left on the server. Thus, you can choose if you’d like all your e-communication to be stored on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to examine the email messages from multiple places. The second alternative is pretty convenient for corporations where different people working on separate machines need to get access to a certain email account.
