    I assume a web browser.  But I would love a description (contextual and in lay terminology, pretty please) of this "email client software" product/program/whatever...   Thanks.  Thought-provoking question - for me, anyway! wink

      Email client software is something like Microsoft Outlook, or Mozilla Thunderbird where you download email to your harddrive.

    I only use a web browser on my computer.  I'm a gmail user and their online interface is great.  I like to keep my laptop running in good shape so I avoid the desktop software.  It downloads your emails and attachments and takes up unnecessary space, in my opinion.  I'm already using a web browser on my computer so it takes no extra effort to keep a gmail tab open.

    I use a web browser to access my email. I like having the ability to access my email from anywhere. I imagine for mobile it would be an app to access your email. Great question.

    I either check it using the email app on my Android phone, or if I'm at home, using a web browser (Google Chrome)

    When I am working at home (or in my case trying to find work) I use an e-mail client. For years at my office, I used a program called GroupWise. It was a Novell product and only works on their servers. It was a great program. It was like having a client and web mail in one, because it had the flexibility of an e-mail client, but all the e-mail was on an offsite server, in a bunker that had backup generators and internet connections.

    Today, at home, I use Outlook to check my Gmail and by ISP mail. On the road or vacation, I use my Blackberry and then go to the appropriate web based e-mail if necessary to respond or look at attachments.

    I use to hate Outlook--still not my favorite, but it has some cool features in the 2010 version that makes it more interactive with the other programs in that suite.
