The Webmail Interface gives you the opportunity to access your personal mailbox with any computer that is connected to the internet.
A web browser is used as an interface to the server Web-applications of the e-Mail provider. Additionally Java-Apps can be used for a better user experience. The user simply requires a computer with a Browser, which supports Java and an active Internet connection.
In comparison to local e-Mail client such as Microsoft-Outlook, Thunderbird etc., all important configurations are stored on the server of the Mailbox-Provider.
