Web mail can also be a feasible solution. I use gmail to retrieve and
aggregate emails from all my other mail boxes. In this way I can read
mails from any places where an internet connection is available.
Other merits over local IMAP include that you do not have to keep your
desktop machine on for all day long, which is a saving of the
environment, the probability of data loss on google clusters can be
considered smaller than that of a desktop disk fault, and gmail can also
be accessed using IMAP.
