What is Email?

Understanding E-Mail 
E-Mail (Electronic Mail) is a facility that serves communication in the Internet to send electronic mail which can reach out to the whole world. Compared with the regular mail, e-mail has the advantage of being more secure and does not distinguish distance and time. Broadly speaking, e-mail can be divided into two, namely the e-mail based on SMTP / POP and web-based e-mail. The following explanation of the E-Mail-based SMTP / POP and Web-based E-Mail: 

1.-Based E-mail SMTP / POP 

E-mail based on SMTP / POP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol / Post Office Protocol) is the e-mail server using SMTP / POP, which is a computer that can send e-mails from the user to the e-mail address of the destination and vice versa. In order to use e-mail on the server SMTP / POP, the user must have an account on the server SMTP / POP. In addition, users also have to use a mail client software to read and send e-mails from and to the server SMTP / POP. If the server has to provide Telnet service, then the user can log into the server machine, then run the mail client software on the server. However, if the server does not provide Telnet service, then the user must have a mail client software such as MS Outlook, Eudora, MS Outlook Express, Pegasus, and Netscape Communicator. In order to use the mail client software, users must set some information, such as name (IP address) server SMTP / POP, the user name (user name / user ID) and password to the e-mail server. 

In server SMTP / POP, all e-mail sent to the user and already have an account on the server will be stored in a directory. Then, when the user contacts the server, all e-mail addressed to him will be sent to the client computer. Conversely, when the user wants to send an e-mail to an e-mail address, the e-mail will be sent to the server SMTP / POP and then be forwarded to the addressee. 

2 WEB Based E-Mail 

Web-based e-mail is different from POP-based e-mail. In the Web-based e-mail, users do not need to have a POP account on the server SMTP / POP for e-mail access via the Web Mail using a browser. On the internet, we can use sites that provide e-mail services (webmail) free such as Yahoo (mail.yahoo.com), Google (Gmail.google.com), Hotmail (www.hotmail.com), etc..
