: basically, pop3 is a mailbox that doesn't sync
: between devices, so if you e.g. use a
: desktop, laptop and mobile you'll only have
: access to the email on the device that you
: downloaded it on.
: exchange is generally a better option,
: although the open version of the same thing
: (which predates it) is called IMAP.
: in terms of who you should use... i'm with
: fasthosts and have been for ages, and it's
: also who my current employer uses. i've
: previously been with 123-reg as well, but
: find the fasthosts email the better of the
: two, and it's exchange-based rather than
: pop3. you can add extra email addresses to
: the domain, too, for additional cost.
: however, they're all much of a muchness,
: really. i'd just get a recommendation from
: whomever it is that does your website in
: terms of hosting, and use that host for your
: email as well.
