Webmail in Direct Admin gebruiken

Web mail is known to be one of the best web tools on the Internet. It enables the user to send, receive and manage emails using a web browser. It is different from a traditional email wherein every user configures an email client on one computer. Therefore, their only access to their email is through one particular computer only which is located in one specific location. The web mail on the other hand, is located up centrally, enabling access from any location through the use of internet.

Web mail has become widely accepted and well known. Web mail services are generally provided for free. Basically, these companies present their services for free to attract users to continue returning back to their site. Most of the users check their email regularly. The larger the number of visitors on the website, the more proceeds a company can get to promote their advertisements.
