Default Best POP3 mail...

I know probably most of yous guys use your isp's mail system, but I was looking for a free pop3 mail sevice to use. I want to stray away from using outlook for email and just use mozilla for everything 8) It would make things easy for me. I just need a good service with a catchy name. Can anyone help me out?

//im in the wrong place, crap. sorry.

hotmail uses pop3 or can be setup as pop3..not sure if it is limited to outlook/hotmail since they are both microsoft products..but worth a looksie.

i currently am using hotmail right now, but i do believe that it uses it's own protocal rather than pop3. i've been working a lot with linux these days and i got outlook working with wine but who wants to run mircosoft programs on linux? i think it would be easier if i could just use mozilla. i am also sick of going to hotmail's ugly web interface.
