Choosing an E-mail Client

From the start, the Internet has been touted as a means for enhancing human communications, and among the many communication tools available in the online world, few have had the impact of electronic mail (e-mail).

To fully understand the nature of e-mail, you should keep in mind that, at its most basic level, it is simply a way for users to send messages to each other over a network. This network could be a local area network (LAN) run by your company using MS Exchange Server software. In this situation, the network server manages all message traffic. The server can also act as a gateway to other servers, allowing you to send mail beyond the local network. If you have an e-mail account with an Internet service provider (ISP) or other Internet-based service, the provider’s server acts as your gateway to other mail servers across the Internet.
