EMAIL
Whenever you connect to the Internet to send an email message, its first sent to your ISP, which acts as a "Post Office". Your ISP then sends it to the receiver’s ISP. The receiver's ISP will then send it to them. 
 
Whenever you download email, the email messages sent to you by other people are stored at your "Post Office" (your ISP). When you connect to the Internet to check your email, your email program goes to your "Post Office" and collects all your email. It then places this email into the Inbox of your email program, for you to read.
