Webmail is a practical alternative to popular PC and mobile phone e-mail apps if you do not have access to your personal machine and also you do not have a smart phone. You'll be able to gain access to your e-mail messages through virtually any browser, so you're able to stay in touch with friends and family when you take a trip and you visit an Internet cafe, for instance. Webmail applications are rather advanced, so not only will you have the ability to send out and receive messages, but you'll also be able to work with an address book, make a personalized signature or even create new folders, that can afterwards come in your desktop email app. You should know that the email messages displayed in the webmail are the ones on the server, so in case you create an e-mail in a PC app with the POP protocol, the messages will be saved on your computer and they will not be accessible in the webmail. The solution in this instance is to apply the IMAP protocol any time you create your emails inside a computer client.
