    You can use Yahoo, hotmail or Gmail. Almost any free service allows pop access.

    Actually, I know Yahoo only allows POP if you pay for their priceier service, I think it might be the same with hotmail. I got a Gmail account specifically to use with Mail because they allow you to use POP, and are free.

    If you need a Gmail account, I have 50 invites just sittin' around, just PM me and I'll send you one.

    I don't think Hotmail offers free POP either. However, there is this plug-in to get Hotmail in Mail.app which works rather nicely.

    Reports on Yahoo seem to be mixed. I only got free POP service while I was a Yahoo SBC DSL customer. I don't anymore. But some people say, perhaps in the UK? That it's free for them.

    I don't see a compelling reason to use Yahoo Mail or Hotmail over GMail at the present... although I have all three.

    I love yahoo mail. Its $20 a year but you get pop and disposable addresses unlimited. I have an email address for every place I register that way if I start getting spammed I can eliminate that email address. Funny though. Now that I am not using my comcast email account I get no spam. Those bastards along with brighthouse networks are soley responsible for all spam in the US. They sell your email. Literally the same day I got comcast I had 13 spam emails in my inbox. Yahoo mail rocks.
