Short answer, no. Norton AntiSpam will not work with web mail as it is out of it's domain (unless the webmail use Norton AntiSpam for their services). Anyways, the web mail service have their own anti spam mechanism that you could train to accurately catch spam (though I wonder why gmail is considering mail from Norton community as phishing).

Hi,

 

both service have it's own AV solution. However Norton will protect you with its other technologies when you download any files (temporary or the ones you save from your mailbox) to your HDD.

On a side note, Yahoo! use Norton as their virus scanner to scan attachments to make sure they are clean.
