what is the difference between web mail and e-mail

Re: Retrieve deleted e-mail addresses



Webmail IS email.  When you see people using the term "webmail", they do so to distinguish only using the browser to look at your email on a website like Comcast, Yahoo, Gmail or some other, as opposed to someone using an email client program on their computer like outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail, Mac Mail or something like that.

 

With webmail only your email resides soley on the mail servers of the email provider.  With a client program you can download your emails to your computer, and you have much better control over them.  There are lots of advantages to using a client.
