If emails are an indispensable component of your e-communication with business partners or relatives, you may be better off using an email address with your own domain
and a mail service provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, instead of relying on a web-based service that involves limitations in regards to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software app – Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you’ll be able to see the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device, unless you choose a copy to be left on the server. What’s more, you will be able to make use of a lot of other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a temporary problem with your Internet access, you can still check your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
