Web-based E-mail

A method of providing E-mail that requires a user to log into a Web site to send and retrieve E-mail, rather than using the domain name and mail server on the network the user's computer is connected to (frequently the domain name mail server of the user's Internet Service Provider). Mail messages are stored on the E-mail Web site, freeing up storage space on the user's hard disk. Web-based E-mail allows the user to easily access E-mail from any computer connected to the Internet, regardless of location or type of connection. See E-mail, Web site, domain name, server, and Internet Service Provider in the hard copy dictionary.
