I'm busy setting up my first WordPress blog on my hosted domain and I have to say that taking action is both exhilarating and a bit scary. I am reminded constantly how much I don't know. It's been very humbling.
My host is Hostgator. Could someone answer a couple quick questions or point me toward the answers re setting up email with them? I've done some research, but it's a bit like learning a foreign language - with no prior exposure! Ack! I'm a little lost...
My choices seem to be POP mail vs. web mail. It looks like POP mail gets downloaded to individual PCs and is not stored on the mail server while web mail is accessed and stored on the web server. Is that correct?
Why would I use one type over the other? What should I be thinking about here? Is there an extra cost associated with setting up mail that I'm not aware of? Any benefits of one over the other or downsides?
I must not know the right search terms to use because I'm not coming up with too much guidance when I google.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. Many thanks to Jeremy Kelsall and Jason Johns for their assistance with my blog setup. And to all the other folks who offered their services. You guys rock! I will make a point to pay your generosity forward.
