Project Name: Web based Mail Client
Web based Mail Client is a full-featured email client based on the Java mail framework. It is designed to combat spamming, and it works with POP3 and IMAP mail servers.
One of the earliest Webmail services was Hotmail. Other very popular webmail providers include Gmail and Yahoo! Mail See also Comparison of webmail providers.
A major advantage of web-based email over application-based email is that a user has the ability to access their inbox from any Internet-connected computer. However, the need for Internet access is also a drawback, in that one cannot access their old messages, or work on new ones, when they are not connected to the Internet.
The prior to its acquisition by Microsoft, Hotmail introduced its service, which became one of the first popular web-based email offerings. Following Hotmail's initial success, Yahoo! released their webmail service, which also grew to become widely popular.
