Webmail is a really handy alternative to popular desktop and mobile phone email apps if you don't have access to your personal computer and you do not have a smartphone. You'll be able to gain access to your email messages through any browser, so you're able to stay in touch with friends and family when you take a trip and you stop by an Internet cafe, for instance. Webmail apps are rather advanced, so you will not only be capable to send out and receive messages, but you'll also be able to use an address book, set up a personalized signature or even set up new folders, that will later appear in your PC e-mail app. It is important to know that the emails available in the webmail are the ones on the server, so if you set up an e-mail in a desktop program with the POP protocol, the messages will be saved on your desktop and they won't be available in the webmail. The solution in cases like this is to apply the IMAP protocol whenever you set up your e-mails inside a personal computer application.
