Webmail is a software application that enables you to work with an e-mail account online through an Internet browser and without creating the account in a PC e-mail client such as Microsoft Outlook or perhaps Apple Mail. This makes it possible to make use of your emails from any location and any PC if you are not capable to use your personal computer - if you're on holiday and you stop by an Internet cafe, for instance. Webmail clients usually do not offer as many options as a common desktop computer app, however, they still offer lots of options, like sending and receiving e-mails, configuring custom-made signature and employing address books. If you create an email address inside a desktop app, you need to use the IMAP protocol during the process in case you want to see all emails later using webmail, as the online client cannot show e-mails from your computer if they have been previously downloaded using the POP mail protocol.

With a handful of clicks you can also make folders, customize the time zone in accordance to your location, create an address book or set up different identities for any given e-mail.
