Email works around the "client/server model". There is a server, which 
provides service, and there are clients, which use it. In this case the 
service that is provided is mail-drop service.  Normally your computer is 
the client, and the place from which it gets its mail is the server. If 
something happens on the "server side", then it is not happening on your 
computer. If something happens on the "client side", then it can happen on 
your computer if you have enabled it.

The advantage of doing something on the client side is that you have more 
control over it. The disadvantages are that the data must be transmitted to 
your computer before you can do anything to it or with it, and that you 
have the responsibility to control it.
