Webmail is a handy alternative to PC and phone e-mail applications if you do not have access to your laptop or computer and you don't have a smartphone. You will be able to gain access to your email messages through any Internet browser, so you can stay in touch with people if you travel and you go to an Internet cafe, for instance. Webmail apps are rather advanced, so you will not only have the ability to send out and receive emails, but you will also be able to use an address book, set up a personalized signature as well as create new folders, that can later show up in your desktop e-mail program. It is important to know that the e-mail messages available in the webmail are those on the server, so in case you set up an e-mail address in a PC app while using POP protocol, the messages will be downloaded on your computer and they will not be accessible in the webmail. The answer in this case is to use the IMAP protocol any time you create your emails in a computer client.
