In case you have a domain name and a web hosting package for it, you will be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email software apps such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. In the meantime, you’ll be able to opt for one of the two most popular email delivery protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will allow you to examine all messages, but they will stay on the email server, while with the second protocol, all messages will be downloaded to the device where the email account is configured, unless you explicitly select a copy to be kept on the server. In this way, you can choose if you want all your e-communication to be stored on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to check the emails from various places. The latter option is rather convenient for businesses where a number of employees working on separate machines need to get access to a specific email account.
