Webmail is a handy alternative to popular PC and phone e-mail apps if you don't have access to your personal computer and also you do not have a smart phone. You will be able to gain access to your e-mails through any browser, so you can stay in touch with friends and family if you travel and you visit an Internet cafe, for example. Webmail apps are rather advanced, so not only will you be capable to send out and receive messages, but you'll also be able to use an address book, make a customized signature or perhaps create new folders, that will afterwards appear in your PC email app. You should know that the email messages available 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 PC and they won't be available in the webmail. The answer in this case is to use the IMAP protocol whenever you create your emails inside a desktop computer client.
