Software run by an ISP or online service that provides access to send, receive, and review e-mail using only your Web browser. Users can simply enter the Webmail Web site URL in their browser’s address or location field, and use their Webmail account by typing in a username and password. Webmail provides an easy access and storage of e-mail messages for users who are not connected to the Internet from their usual location. Instead of the e-mail being downloaded to the computer you are checking your e-mail account from, the messages will stay on the provider’s server, allowing you access to all e-mail messages regardless of what system or ISP you are connected to the Internet with. Hotmail, Gmail, and Yahoo! mail are all examples of popular webmail providers. Additionally many ISPs offer webmail services to customers in addition to POP e-mail services.
