Here comes the question. Which one is better: client email software (eg Outlook, Outlook Express) or webmail? The table below might help you find the answer.
|Client email software||Webmail|
|Infrastructure||Can only stored in specified computers; once you change to use another computer, you need to go through all settings over again and the downloaded emails might not be able to be transferred to the new computer||Can access to email account with any computer with Internet connection|
|Capacity||Emails are stored in PC, that take up a portion of spaces||Emails are stored online in website spaces. Does not take up spaces in PC|
In short, webmails are more suitable for people who frequently travel around, as they can access email accounts easily with a computer. People working in offices should consider client email software, for they provide clear classifications of emails and higher efficiency.
