Webmail is a convenient replacement for computer and smart phone email apps if you do not have access to your personal machine and you do not have a smart phone. You'll be able to gain access to your emails through virtually any browser, so you're able to keep in touch with people if you travel and you visit an Internet cafe, for instance. Webmail applications are rather advanced, so not only will you have the ability to send and receive e-mails, you can also work with an address book, create a customized signature or even set up new folders, that can afterwards show up in your PC e-mail program. It is important to know that the e-mail messages displayed in the webmail are the ones on the server, so if you create an e-mail in a PC app using the POP protocol, the messages will be saved on your hard drive and they won't be accessible in the webmail. The solution in cases like this is to use the IMAP protocol whenever you set up your emails inside a PC client.
