Webmail is a really useful alternative to desktop and smart phone email apps if you do not have access to your personal computer and also you don’t have a smart phone. You will be able to gain access to your e-mails through virtually any Internet browser, so you’re able to keep in touch with friends and family if you travel around and you stop by an Internet cafe, for example. Webmail apps are rather advanced, so you will not only have the ability to send and receive messages, but you’ll also be able to work with an address book, make a customized signature or even set up new folders, that can later on come in your desktop email program. It is important to know that the e-mail messages shown in the webmail are the ones on the server, so in case you set up an e-mail in a desktop program using the POP protocol, the messages will be saved on your desktop and they won’t be available in the webmail. The answer in this case is to apply the IMAP protocol any time you create your e-mails inside a desktop computer client.
