    Gmail is good, so is Gawab and Hotpop, all offer free POP access as well.

    I'd go for Yahoo. 100mb storage, email checked by Norton, Anti Spam controls and it's all free.

    Yep, go with Yahoo. I used to be a Hotmail user too but I found Yahoo mail to be much better.

    Right now, it has 1gb storage, way more than enough than what you'll probably need (I'm on 2% right now and I don't delete much email) . Some features that I like: Email attachment scanned by Norton, email search feature, email filters, great junk (spam) mail filtering engine, automatic delete of junk (spam) mail every 7 days (or more).

    It would be well worth checking the privacy policy of any provider first - Eric Howes has a good commentary on Yahoo's privacy policy which may give some idea as to the real cost of their "free" services.

    I'd suggest instead using an email forwarding service - you can then change the email it goes to without anyone else needing to change their address books. SpamGourmet is a good one with plenty of useful features (though it is mainly for creating temporary addresses) - SneakEmail and SpamMotel are other options.
