The Difference Between Email and the World Wide Web
Browsing the Web and using Email are two different activities you can do using the Internet.
You can use separate software for composing, sending and receiving email (e.g. Eudora, MS Exchange). Access to the web is not needed to use this email.
Email can also be web-based (e.g. Yahoo! Mail, HotMail). Email is composed, sent and received using a web browser such as Netscape.
