What do you call the 'normal' way? If you mean the service from a dutch provider then no. That's why they have that service via webmail and/or netmail. But you can always use a new (free) account from Gmail, Hotmail of Windows Live. At home you can see those mails in your Ziggomailbox (in you add them of course).
I am not an expert at this, so maybe someone else has a better answer, but this is the way I use and it works all over the world. Good luck.
