b)       domain:

A domain is a name for an IP address and is more commonly recognized as a website or web address. For example, is a domain.

c)        SMTP:

SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is a set of standard Internet procedures by which two email providers (ex. Gmail, Yahoo Mail), transfer email messages to one another’s mail servers.

d)       IP address:

An IP address (Internet Protocol address) is a series of numbers that identifies a digital device such as your computer. They work like your home address–they allow data to arrive at the correct Internet location.

e)       POP:

POP (Post office protocol) is a one-way download of your messages that allows you to access your mail with a mail program like Outlook Express or Apple Mail. It only offers one-way communication, which means that actions you take in the mail program (like marking a message as read) won’t be synced to Gmail.
