How to Login to Webmail

By Brendan O'Brien

Webmail is a type of email that allows you to access your messages on any computer with a browser and Internet connection. Webmail has its advantages over email clients (such as Outlook) in that it allows remote access to your account. It also is convenient because it does not require extra software to be installed on your computer. It takes a couple of moments to log in to your webmail account.

Step 1

Open a browser.

Step 2

Go to your email service login page. For example, If you have a Yahoo! account, go to, if you have a Gmail account, go to and if you have a AOL account, go to Contact your Internet service provider if you're not sure of your Webmail login page.

Step 3

Type your user name and password in the fields provided on the page.

Step 4

Click the "Go" or "Sign In" button. You will be taken to your email account where you can manage your messages.
