Webmail is a convenient alternative to computer and smart phone e-mail applications if you don't 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 remain in touch with people when you travel around and you drop by an Internet cafe, for instance. Webmail apps are rather advanced, so you will not only have the ability to send out and receive messages, but you will also be able to make use of an address book, create a personalized signature as well as make new folders, that can later on come in your PC e-mail app. You should know that the email messages displayed in the webmail are the ones on the server, so if you set up an e-mail address in a desktop app while using POP protocol, the messages will be saved on your PC and they won't be accessible in the webmail. The answer in cases like this is to use the IMAP protocol when you set up your e-mails inside a PC client.
