If you’re like most people, you rely on email to stay in touch with friends, family, and co-workers. But what happens if you’re traveling or find yourself without your laptop? You know that it can be a hassle to have to access your email from each machine separately.

To access your email from a web browser:

You can easily check your email from any computer by going to Google Mail, Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail, or Outlook .com.
