In case you’ve got a domain and a web hosting account for it, you’ll be able to create email accounts for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with apps such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. During the procedure, you’ll be able to opt for one of the two most popular email retrieval protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will enable you to examine all messages, but they will stay on the email server, while with the second protocol, all messages will be downloaded on the device where the email account is created, unless you explicitly choose a copy to be stored on the server. In this way, you can choose if you want all your email correspondence to be kept on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to see the emails from many locations. The latter alternative is extremely handy for businesses where different people working on different computers need to access a specific mailbox.
