You could always go to your isp and get an email account through them. Those usually look pretty professional.

I use my aim account :P
It doesn't look professional at all, but you would be amazed by how much spam gets filtered. I hardly ever get spam in the spam folder, and I don't get one mail in my Inbox that I don't know who sent it. Amazing for a seeming cheap service that everyone doesn't expect.

If you register your own domain name (something like yourname.com) employers will look it up and if it returns a blank page it doesn't look very profesionals. I'd say go with your ISP because hotmail.com doesn't scream profesional either

If you don't go through your ISP, do gmail or yahoo. Plenty of self-employeed people still use those as their email provider to give it a professional appeal if you do a firstnamelastname (or initials of either) kind of email address.

If you want to go the Microsoft route, you could try live.com as well.
At least it's not hotmail.
