Webmail is a convenient alternative to popular PC and smart phone email apps if you don't have access to your personal machine and you do not have a smartphone. You will be able to gain access to your e-mails through virtually any Internet browser, so that you can keep in touch with people if you take a trip and you stop by an Internet cafe, for example. Webmail applications are rather advanced, so you will not only have the ability to send out and receive emails, you can also make use of an address book, create a custom signature or even make new folders, that will afterwards come in your PC e-mail program. You should know that the e-mails shown in the webmail are the ones on the server, so if you set up an email address in a PC app while using POP protocol, the messages will be saved on your hard drive and they won't be accessible in the webmail. The answer in this instance is to apply the IMAP protocol any time you create your emails in a desktop client.
