About Webmail

About Webmail – The term Webmail (or Web-based email) is used to describe two things.

One use of the word is to describe a Webmail client: an email client implemented as a web application accessed via a web browser.

The other use of the word is to describe a Web-based email service: an email service offered through a web site (a webmail provider) such as Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail and AOL Mail.

Practically every webmail provider offers email access using a webmail client, and many of them also offer email access by a desktop email client using standard email protocols,

while many internet service providers provide a webmail client as part of the email service included in their internet service package.

As with any web application, webmail’s main advantage over the use of a desktop email client is the ability to send and receive email anywhere from a web browser.

Its main disadvantage is the need to be connected to the internet while using it (Gmail offers offline use of its webmail client through the installation of Gears.
