Default Free e-mail account?

What is the best free e-mail account service i can get (besides hotmail). I'm looking to set up a 2nd e-mail account and was looking for the best free one.

Uh... Gmail is good. I think you can go to gmail.com and register now.

Im not sure that there is a need for invites, although I could be wrong.

Gmail pisses me off, because its not like an actual site. Its like a Java thing, or flash player thing. IDK, but sometimes it doesnt work the way i want. Id leave it, but everything is under that. So, I might try thunderbird.

You can set up Gmail with an email client, but for some reason it also retrieves your sent messages and puts them in your inbox which is a bit annoying, but yeah either gmail or yahoo for me.

No, they still have a free service, but for enhanced features like e-mail backups etc you have to pay $19.99. I hardly get important emails or anything anyways, so Yahoo! Mail is fine, but I might try Mozilla Thunderbird.
