Yes.   The AS/400 does POP3 e-mail out of the box.   However, POP3 E-mail
is not the same as "web enabled" or "HTML" Email.

You COULD however, refer to POP3 as "browser based", since Netscape
Communicator includes a POP3 client along with the browser.   Likewise, 
Internet Explorer will install Outlook Express for you, which is also
a POP3 client. 

You need to decide whether you're looking for "web/html mail" or whether
you're looking for "POP3" mail.   

I'm pretty sure the AS/400 doesn't come with WebMail out of the box.
However, you might find/port a Java or Perl webmail client that was
written for Linux or Windows to the AS/400.
