    You just need to setup Mail to send and receive mail. You can use any non-web based mail account. You can use a web mail account that provides imap/smtp or something else that mail can talk. This pretty much rules out free Yahoo accounts and maybe Hotmail too.

    You don't need a .Mac account to use Mail. You can add a Hotmail plug-in to use Hotmail, but I don't know about Yahoo!. You can find it at www.versiontracker.com and search for httpmail. Make sure to follow the instructions.
