It's just one of those things - that many users don't fully grasp the distinction between 'ordinary' (POP) email and Webmail.  Others - not necessarily in error - consider that webmail IS the standard, or ordinary method of handling email.

With no intention of insulting the intelligence of the savvy, bear with us a moment whilst we expand on the difference.

POP (Post Office Protocol) email is 'delivered' on request to your computer when you use a Mail application, and you read and sort the 
mail now stored - in your local system. It's easy; means you've got it to refer back to; can copy out attachments etc. without being 
on-line which is significant if you're on a relatively expensive dial-up connection - or paying per minute in a hotel room with your laptop etc.

However, that's not very useful if you're in an Internet Cafe; On someone elses system; At work where you can't take personal mail or using another of your own machines which you don't want your email stored on... So, then you use webmail.

With a good Webmail program (and note that some are far from good), you access, read & sort your mail on-line - live through the Internet - using your browser (e.g. MS Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Netscape Navigator, Opera etc. [ if you've only ever used the one that came with your system... you should try the others. Most are free, and there are differences you might appreciate. ]:o)

This means the mail itself is never in the immediate machine, can't be dug out by the next user, and anything you don't want can be 
thrown away without being opened or downloaded.

In short, in all... it's a bit like whether you have your mail delivered through your letterbox at home, or go down to the sorting office (from Anywhere in the World) and check through your PO box.

Our inclusive WebMail is one of the most powerful and flexible available...

Because it's integrated with your regular mailbox/es, most of the features & facilities listed under [email] and here, are relevant 
whichever method you use. 

Folder Support means you can easily store and organise your mail - by contact, group or subject etc. Create as many folders as you 

The Enhanced Calendar allows you to easily manage tasks and appointments. Expanded on a per item view or summarised to your daily, weekly, quarterly or annual preference.

Outlook-to-Webmail Sync enables Microsoft Outlook to be synchronized with your Webmail account so that contacts and scheduler data can be shared between a desktop and Webmail client.
If a user adds a new appointment (task) or contact while using Outlook or Webmail, the data will be automatically synchronised between the applications.

Webmail's Enhanced Address Book functionality allows you to sychronise your Webmail account with your existing address-books, or 
exchange data with other applications. Import or export details with simple '.CSV' files (Comma Separated Values) to re-use, analyse 
or sort in your preferred word processor, spreadsheet or database etc.

Using the built in Spell Checker... with the new and updated language database, helps you avoid those silly, and sometimes embarrassing 
typos before they get sent.

Mailbox Sorting & Searching allows messages contained in your Inbox to be sorted by subject, date, or email address. You can search your mailbox for keywords, allowing quick and easy access to your stored email.

Rich HTML Messages allow you to Create eye-catching emails using different fonts and colours or by embedding pictures and sounds. Why 
not add your company logo or a customised signature? You can easily attach files to your emails to send to friends, family or colleagues.

With Email Filters you Create rules to move specific messages where you want them by Recipient name, Sender, Subject or dependant on 
text in the message... or block unwanted senders altogether.

Webmail is one of our most popular features and we operate our Webmail system on a sophisticated hardware platform. This uses 
state-of-the-art hardware load balancers to distribute traffic to our cluster of Webmail servers. Your messages are centrally stored on giant disk arrays and backed up each day, first to another disk array and then to tape which is stored offsite.

The 'Email Copy to SMS' feature allows you to receive copies of emails via SMS texts (Small Message System). For example you can set up an email address such as and have selected or all emails sent to this address automatically copied as text messages to your mobile phone. This is part of the 'Email SMS Notification' add-on which is available at a monthly charge. Please check the price in the Store (Buy Now / Shopping) section.

Similarly, the 'Email SMS Notify' feature allows you to get notifications of the selected or all emails you've received via SMS. For example any mail from specific senders that your filters forward to - say - can, in turn - trigger a custom notification message sent to your mobile phone. Again, Please check the price of the 'Email SMS Notification' add-on in the Store (Buy Now / 
Shopping) section.
