What is Webmail?

Webmail is the ability to access your business email account from any PC or Laptop in the world without using any applications such as MS Outlook, just like hotmail or yahoo mail and all in English.

How does it work?

You can use any industry standard Browser application such as MS Internet Explorer or FireFox just as you do to browse any normal website. You can then go to your email account by simply using the URL for your webmail access. You are then presented with a login page (see photo 1) which you can enter by using your email address and password. You are in and can now view your emails, compose new email, reply, forward and delete your email as if you were in the office (see photo 2).


What is the benefit?

Regular travellers will find this very useful but even if you are not a regular traveller you will find this very helpful:

  • Away on vacation – This is particularly useful for when you are on vacation but do not want to risk taking your laptop with you. You can go to any Mobile Device, Internet Café, any terminals provided in hotels or bedrooms for accessing your email.
  • Breakdown – If your computer or laptop is away for repair you do not have to despair. You can still access your email via alternative computer at your disposal without having to load Ms Outlook or other applications on someone else’s computer.
  • Lost computer – If your computer has been lost or stolen, you can be online within seconds and still be in touch with those important clients, friends and relatives.
  • Ease of use – The screens and functions of the webmail replicate as close as possible the popular email applications like Ms Outlook, so there is minimum learning involved.
