While you can access your AT&T email service online using the webmail option, it will often be more convenient to use an email client. Email clients such as Windows Mail or Microsoft Outlook send and receive email instantly. Email clients do not need an open Web browser window to access email and so you can browse the Web and send emails at the same time.
