The importance of Webmail

Fortunately my host offers webmail access to email, which is a great way to get to your mail when away from your computer. It is also a great way to be able to send when your company turns off Port 25. ;(

Squirrelmail, which is the software I have access to, refreshes on a nice short interval and can even notify me of new messages with a sound or a simple change in the name of the tab I am leaving open in Safari. While not as good as any POP or IMAP client you might have, it gets the job done and plays within the rules at work.

Whoa – one cool thing I just noticed as I was clearing out some spam is that you can block receipt requests when you open or check messages.

    It has some cool plug-ins, such as weather, fetchmail, gotmail, edit-from, QOTD Etc… It is IMHO the best webmail client going.

    Another is IWM (Instant web mail)
    As you can install it on your host in seconds and it is very very fast đŸ™‚
