Email has become an essential part of our life and it is hard to imagine a business world without such useful tool. Considering the widespread usage of various email clients, it’s important to use software that has appropriate options that will enhance your user experience and simplify most of your operations connected with emails. Of course there are many free email services though today we are talking about webmail clients using POP3 and SMTP protocols for both local and remote mail servers. Mostly these mail clients are powered by PHP or Java scripts. Even though most of these clients are not that new, we believe that their popularity and great set of extremely useful and well-thought options will be the key arguments for you to try them out. As usual we are glad to hear a word from you about software that we have missed to include to our list.
