Using generic emails like Yahoo and Gmail for businesses do little in inspiring confidence in customers.
Most companies and professionals often use domain-based email accounts like email@example.com to maintain professional images and conduct official businesses.
This article guides you on quickly creating professional email accounts from your Spanel account and how to access the emails using webmail software.
But first, let’s quickly understand what webmail is and why it’s beneficial to use one.
Let’s get started.
Webmail allows users to access email services or accounts through web browsers. It’s a quick alternative to email clients—a third-party software application for accessing and managing email accounts.
Some of the examples of popular webmail include www.gmail.com, www.yahoomail.com, www.aol.com, and others. They allow Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and AOL Mail users to manage their accounts from the web without downloading any app.
Webmail software like RainLoop, RoundCube, Thunderbird, Horde, SquirrelMail, and others allow users to access and manage their domain email accounts from an easy-to-use web interface.
Scalahosting provides free webmail services to customers using RainLoop.
The Webmail Software Advantages
Using webmail software comes with some tremendous benefits. Let’s take a look at some:
- It allows domain-based email users to read, send and delete email messages with ease.
- Webmail software eliminates the need to download and install third-party email clients.
- Webmail is web-based, making it possible for users to access email accounts from anywhere remotely.
- Using webmail is intuitive, and they’re not often tricky to set up.
