What happens if you have a road abroad, or even only in another locality? How do you read your emails? Sure, you can take the mail reading program with you, or it may even be installed on the computer you want to read your mail from; for example, Outlook Express installs at once with Windows.
The method of using the mail program on a computer other than yours has two major disadvantages:
You must configure the program on your computer to log in to the account on the Internet server (the server of the Internet provider) from "home" and bring new letters from there.
Most likely you do not have access to your letters at home because they are on your personal computer, which is currently off. This can be annoying sometimes, when you want to search for a letter received earlier.
What if you could keep the entire mailbox on an easily accessible server that goes day and night? And you can read your letters without needing a special program. No configuration. Just using a regular browser, which exists on any computer connected to the Internet!
Exist something like this. There are web servers, which you can connect to with a web browser, and, besides news, weather, sports and other information, you can also read e-mail. Of course, the first time you have to create an account on the server; the process of creating the account is also done through the Web, using the browser.
Since you access the mailbox through the Web, this service is also called Web-mail.
There are many sites that offer the mailbox - mail account - on their servers. Moreover, they offer this service for free. Instead, when you upload the web page from their server, to read your letters, you will see not only the letters, but also the ads, from which these sites live.
