Webmail is a really useful replacement for computer and phone email apps if you don't have access to your laptop or computer and also you do not have a smartphone. You'll be able to gain access to your emails through virtually any Internet browser, so you can remain in touch with friends and family if you travel around and you drop by an Internet cafe, for example. Webmail applications are rather advanced, so you will not only be capable to send out and receive e-mails, but you'll also be able to work with an address book, make a custom signature or perhaps make new folders, that will later appear in your desktop email application. You should know that the e-mails displayed in the webmail are the ones on the server, so if you create an e-mail in a PC 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 this instance is to use the IMAP protocol any time you create your e-mails in a PC app.
