Webmail (or web-based email) is a web email application accessible via a web browser. 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.

Instead of using a desktop email client like Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail, webmail enables users to send, receive, and manage emails directly from a web-based interface.

With webmail, users can access their email accounts from any device with an internet connection, such as computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. They can log in to their email accounts through a web browser and perform various email-related tasks, including composing and sending emails, organizing messages into folders, searching for specific emails, managing contacts and address books, setting up filters and rules, and more.

Webmail interfaces are designed to provide a user-friendly and intuitive email experience, often offering features similar to traditional desktop email clients.

Webmail offers convenience and flexibility, as users can access their email accounts without the need to install any additional software. It allows for seamless access to emails and related features, making it a popular choice for individuals and businesses alike.
