Webmail is a handy alternative to popular desktop and smartphone e-mail applications if you don't have access to your personal machine and you do not have a smart phone. You'll be able to access your emails through virtually any browser, so that you can remain in touch with friends and family when you travel around and you go to an Internet cafe, for example. Webmail applications are rather advanced, so not only will you have the ability to send out and receive messages, but you will also be able to work with an address book, create a custom signature as well as make new folders, that can later on come in your PC email program. It is important to know that the emails displayed in the webmail are those on the server, so in case you set up an e-mail address in a desktop program using the POP protocol, the messages will be downloaded on your PC and they will not be accessible in the webmail. The answer in cases like this is to use the IMAP protocol whenever you create your emails in a desktop application.
