Which Email Program is Right for You?
There are two basic types of email programs: web-based programs and software-based programs. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Here are some details, so you can choose the one that works the best for you.
Web-Based Email Programs
Web-based email programs include Midco email, Gmail and Yahoo Mail. They’re useful for frequent travelers, since you can access your email from anywhere with an internet connection – and you can often access it via an app on your mobile device.
An internet connection is required to access your email, since the provider’s servers store your messages. There may also be restrictions on how much email you can store on that provider’s servers. For example, Midco allows 5 GB of email storage.
Software-Based Email Programs
Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Mac Mail and other software-based email programs are installed directly on your computer – and the amount of email you keep is limited only by your computer’s storage capacity. Emails, contacts and your calendar are also stored on your computer, so you don’t need the internet to access emails (though you do need the internet to send or receive new email messages).
Generally, these programs have more features and options – although this can make them more complicated.
