E-Mail Swap - Check E-Mail
When you sign up for an email service, make sure you can check your email online using a web browser. This will save you a lot of headache if you want to use your email from another computer. POP3 email programs like Outlook and Outlook Express allow you to send and receive email via a POP3 email server. They are convenient to use, and that is why many email services offer POP3 email accounts. Unfortunately, POP3 is useless if you do not have access to an email program. Fortunately, most mail services offer access via a web browser. This is basically a web interface to the POP3 server to make it convenient to access email through a web browser.
So, just make sure that the email provider you are signing up with does allow web access and this will make life easier.
