I have an email account with my hosting package. Is there a web service that will allow me to view my emails from any web browser (to simulate a Gmail like experience). So far I only know how to do it via the Mac Mail app and my iPhone.

You can still use gmail and add your hosting email account as a POP3 account:

The other answers I'm sure were good, but this is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks! – Eric Brotto May 25 '11 at 17:05

Good but I won't give you a +1 on top of the one you have, because you pathetically just quoted their marketting blurb. Anyhow, yes it is a good site i've used it many times, been around a while, I put it to good use a number of times 10 years ago.. and no doubt it's still going strong. – barlop May 25 '11 at 17:12

There is no way to export emails with web2mail and I could not make pop3 to work either. – husayt Oct 9 '12 at 10:38

You can install a webmail client to your webserver. Here are some clients you can look at:

Which clients does the link talk about? Why not put them in your answer? – slhck May 25 '11 at 15:51
Giving the asker a bunch of names he wouldn't recognize didn't seem the best way to answer. The link takes you to a page that gives a screen shot of each client's look and gives a small description. The main point was that he could install his own webclient. – Chris Ting May 25 '11 at 17:38
