E-mail messages are sent and received through what is commonly referred
to as a client device such as a personal computer, workstation, or a
mobile device including mobile phones or Pocket PCs. The client
typically connects to a network of centralized computer systems
comprised of servers or mainframe computers where the e-mail mailboxes
are stored. The centralized e-mail servers connect to the Internet and
private networks where e-mail messages are sent to and received from
other e-mail users.
