Webmail is a tool that lets you send and read emails directly from any computer connected to the internet.

Webmail are web-based email accounts. These are usually free email accounts that are operated from a website. Examples include Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo Mail.

Webmail allows the users to access their emails as long as they have access to an Internet connection and a web browser. This also means that the user cannot read an old email or draft a new email offline.

If your email account is set up as POP3, Webmail is the email that has not been downloaded by Outlook (or some other Email client: Apple mail, Windows Live Mail, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc) yet, or not deleted off the server yet.  (POP3 email client setups have a setting that allows you to “Keep email on server” for a designated time.)

If your email account is set up as IMAP, Webmail is the email that is always on the server, and also viewable in your Email client (Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail), until you move your email from the online folders to local folders on your local computer.
