How to access your e-mail from another computer with Webmail
The simplest and most immediate way to access your mailbox from another computer is to use the Webmail, that is the online panel that allows you to manage your email account from the browser. All major email providers offer this type of service.
To access the Webmail of gmail, all you have to do is connect to the main page of the service and provide the login credentials of your Google account: once this is done, it becomes possible to read and send messages from your e-mail box in a very simple way.

Then type the password for your account in the field Enter your password, and click the button again NEXT. In the event that two-step verification is enabled on your account, to access your address, you will also need to provide the code security that you will receive according to the method you have previously chosen (eg SMS) or authenticate access through the Google app on a verified device.
If everything went well, through the procedure described above, you should be able to log in to your Gmail account. To log out, however, click on your profile photo, located at the top right, and select the item Logout from the menu that opens (however, this is not necessary if you are browsing incognito).

How to access your email from another computer with an email client
You came to this guide to find out if it is possible access your email from another computer with an email client? Of course he yes. However, if it is a computer that you only use temporarily, I recommend that you use a portable email client, to be copied to a USB stick. If, on the other hand, it is another computer that you own, you can safely proceed with a classic client installed on the PC.
Use a portable client on a USB stick
If you need to connect to your mailbox from one or more PCs not owned by you, I strongly suggest you use a client email portable, to be copied onto a USB pendrive, so as to always have it at hand and not to leave traces on the computers used.
Portable programs, as I explained to you in this other guide, do not require installation and can be stored on removable media: ideal if you have to use a client on a computer that is not yours.
One of the best solutions in the category is the portable version of Mozilla Thunderbird: to download it on your computer, linked to this page, click on the button Download from PortableApps.com and open the file .exe that you got. Then, in the window that opens, click on the buttons Next, install e Finish, to download all the program files.
Once you have downloaded the portable version of the application and entered the USB pendrive on your computer, drag its folder onto the media name in question and that's it. At this point, you are ready to set up your mail account in Thunderbird.
To do this, after launching the application, click on the button Skip this step and use an existing address, located at the bottom left, and write, in the appropriate text fields, name, email address e Password. Then click on the button Continue, wait for Thunderbird to configure the account automatically, set the use of the protocol IMAP (in order to keep the local mail synchronized with the one hosted on the remote servers of your email provider), click on the button Done and follow the instructions that appear on the screen to complete the procedure.
If, unfortunately, the automatic procedure is not successful, you will have to type "manually" the addresses of the servers for incoming and outgoing mail, following the instructions on the site of your mail provider or in this tutorial of mine. After entering all the required information, click on the button Review and then Done, to complete the procedure.
Please note: the above steps are for Windows systems only. On macOS and Linux there is no concept of a "portable" application, since, as a rule, the software does not require special setups and does not act on the registry (which is not present on these systems).
Add your email to the client installed on the PC
Are you going to add your email to the client installed on another PC in your possession? In this case, all you have to do is start the client of your interest (eg. Microsoft Outlook, Windows 10 Mail, Apple Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc.) and follow the procedure for adding a new account using the parameters IMAP provided by your provider.
In case you have difficulty completing the procedure in question, I suggest you take a look at my guide on how to set up email on PC: there you will not only find the list of IMAP parameters of the main email services, but also the instructions for configure your account with some of the main email clients for Windows and macOS.How to access your e-mail from another computer
