In case you’ve got a domain and a web hosting account for it, you will be able to create email accounts for personal or business purposes and to set them up with email software programs such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. In the meantime, you’ll be able to opt for one of the two popular email protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will enable you to see all messages, but they will remain on the email server, whereas with the second one, all email messages will be downloaded on the device where the email account is created, unless you explicitly select a copy to be stored on the server. Thus, you can choose if you would like all your email communication to be stored on one single device, or if you would rather be able to examine the emails from many locations. The second alternative is extremely handy for organizations where a number of people working on different computers need to access a particular email account.
