Webmail is a piece of software that lets you work with an e-mail account online via a browser and without configuring the account in any PC email client such as Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail. This will make it possible to use your e-mails from any place and any PC if you aren't capable to use your personal computer - when you are on holiday and you visit an Internet cafe, for example. Webmail clients normally do not offer as many options as a standard desktop app, however, they still feature a lot of options, for example sending and receiving email messages, creating custom-made signature and using address books. When you setup an e-mail address inside a desktop app, you have to use the IMAP protocol during the process in case you want to see all emails later using webmail, because the online app cannot display emails from your PC if they were previously downloaded using the POP mail protocol.
