There are numerous web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but using an email with your own personal domain will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you will not bump into such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to check your emails, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. 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 on your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
