What is the difference between e-mail and webmail?

Webmail

E-mail and Webmail are basically the same – electronic mail. However the way you can access that information is different. Email you can download onto your computer using an e-mail software package such as Outlook Express. Webmail is e-mail that you can read online through a web browser. The mail remains on a web hosting server and you do not have the emails downloaded onto your personal computer. Webmail can be useful if you are traveling and want to read your e-mail from anywhere around the world where you can have access to the Internet. Some Webmail packages are limited in how much space you can take so you may not be able to receive large images or files, or you may have to delete messages often, or purchase more storage space. Some of the most popular Webmail services include Hotmail, Juno and Yahoo Mail.
