There’re many web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email account with your own domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not run into such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your email messages, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up a mailbox on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.
