I been using Yahoo for several years. You can use it as web mail or POP3 mail. The only catch is you have to enable it in the option. They won't tell you that when you sign up. It will send you advertise email once of a while, like twice a month after you enable it.
(drifting off topic) I'll second Yahoo for pop/smtp mail. I've had several ISPs fold/bought out so I use Yahoo almost exclusively for email. I haven't even used my latest ISP email! I also have a geocities web page, but don't like the popup ads.
