With GOOGLE one gets information about HTTP !!!
HTTP ist the protocol for a / the brower/s !!
Principially it has NOTHING to do with (e-) mails !
With webmail one accesses an existing (e-)mail domain per browser i.e
Blazer, Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, Opera, Safari, Seamonkey
and many others ...
... to get mails directly from there in the WWW like these:
Search again with GOOGLE !!!
With Thunderbird as (e-)mailer one accesses its accounts direct to
download e-mails arrived on the respective accounts !!
HTTP is for browsing and not for mailing ! ;-)
