Webmail is a really practical alternative to popular desktop and smart phone email apps if you don't have access to your personal machine and also you don't have a smartphone. You'll be able to gain access to your e-mails through any browser, so that you can keep in touch with people if you take a trip and you stop by an Internet cafe, for instance. Webmail apps are rather advanced, so you will not only have the ability to send and receive e-mails, you can also use an address book, set up a customized signature as well as set up new folders, that will afterwards appear in your PC e-mail program. You should know that the email messages available in the webmail are the ones on the server, so in case you create an email in a desktop program while using POP protocol, the messages will be downloaded on your computer and they will not be available in the webmail. The solution in cases like this is to apply the IMAP protocol when you set up your e-mails in a personal computer application.
