Webmail is a handy alternative to popular PC and smartphone email applications if you do not have access to your personal computer and you do not have a smartphone. You will be able to gain access to your e-mails through virtually any browser, so you can stay in touch with friends and family if you take a trip and you go to an Internet cafe, for instance. Webmail applications are rather advanced, so not only will you have the ability to send and receive emails, you can also use an address book, make a customized signature or perhaps set up new folders, that will later come in your PC e-mail application. It is important to know that the emails shown in the webmail are those on the server, so if you create an e-mail address in a PC program while using POP protocol, the messages will be saved on your desktop and they will not be accessible in the webmail. The solution in this case is to apply the IMAP protocol whenever you create your e-mails inside a desktop computer client.
