Web mail

Web mail is a Web page interface used to access e-mail through a Web browser. In order to use Web mail your ISP needs to provide this service or you can get a subscription to an Internet Web mail service (some free, some paid subscriptions). Web mail is a secure Web page that you load in your Web browser and log in by entering your username and password. Web mail is popular as it allows you to send or receive e-mail from anywhere, so long as the computer you are using is connected to the Internet and has a Web browser. It is an excellent option for those traveling or working outside the office.
