Retrieve your email from anywhere in the world!
Webmail is a FREE web-based email provider. This means you can send and receive messages from any computer connected to the Internet. You can use Webmail from home, work, school, university, or in fact, simply any computer in the world with an Internet connection. Your messages are stored in a central location, so your Inbox will always be up to date. This is great for people who use more than one computer, travel frequently, or don't even own a computer.
Get a permanent email address
When you create a Webmail account, you choose a permanent e-mail address that will never change as long as you continue to use Webmail. This is great for people who:
Want to switch Internet Service Providers
Your Webmail address will be the same no matter how you access the Internet, so you don't have to worry about retrieving messages from your old address or notifying friends, family and associates of a new e-mail address. You are free to select any Internet Service Provider that suits your needs.
Are thinking about changing jobs
If you switch jobs, you lose access to the email account provided by your employer. Webmail offers a way to communicate with important contacts.
Leave School, College or University
When you leave school for the summer, travel abroad or graduate, you may no longer have access to your email account. With Webmail, your friends will always know where to reach you.
Keep your private email private and access it in your own time at an internet cafe, or on your own PC and avoid snooping eyes!
Your e-mail is private and secure
Webmail is strongly committed to keeping your personal information confidential. When you sign up for Webmail, you choose your personal ID and password. The only way you can access your account is by using the password you select. This means that only you will have access to your Webmail account, even if you use a computer at a public terminal or a friend's house. Just remember to logout to ensure security.
Because the messages in your Webmail account are stored securely at a central location, you don't have to worry about losing important information if something happens to your computer.
Get an additional email account for FREE
Webmail offers everyone the opportunity to get a free email account. Webmail can offer email accounts for free because we place banner advertising on some of our pages.
Some Internet Service Providers charge a monthly fee for additional email accounts. Webmail lets an unlimited number of people use a single Internet Service Provider account and have a free, personal email account.
Keep your personal email separate from your work email
People who use email from work will find it convenient to keep their personal messages separate from their work messages. You can use Webmail for your personal correspondence and your company's email system only for business messages. Additionally, you don't have to store personal email on your company's servers. All messages in your Webmail account are securely stored in a central location that you access via the Internet with the password you select.
