Webmail is a useful alternative to popular desktop and smartphone e-mail applications if you do not have access to your personal machine and you do not have a smartphone. You'll be able to access your emails through virtually any browser, so you're able to remain in touch with friends and family when you travel and you drop by an Internet cafe, for instance. Webmail apps are rather advanced, so not only will you be capable to send and receive e-mails, you can also use an address book, make a customized signature as well as create new folders, that will later on come in your PC email program. It is important to know that the e-mails shown in the webmail are the ones on the server, so if you set up an e-mail in a PC app with the POP protocol, the messages will be downloaded on your PC and they won't be accessible in the webmail. The solution in this instance is to apply the IMAP protocol any time you create your e-mails inside a personal computer app.
