Default Desktop vs. Web Client

Please Login to Remove!

Maybe I didn't search enough but what is the difference and/or any preferences that anyone may have if there is a difference.
Thanks!

Desktop means you use either Redirector or the Enterprise Server to send/receive email.

Web Client is the same thing, only you use the Web Client to send email with maybe a spoofed from address and you receive email from that address as well as any integrations.

They are not mutually exclusive.

The biggest difference of all. "Desktop" and everything that goes with it requires you to have a Microsoft Exchange Server. Or a Lotus Domino server, but Redirector does not work with that.
