G-mail is free e-mail from the Google guys. There's tons of storage and the format is awesome. I was a die-hard AOL fan and never thought of switching, but I dumped it in a second for G-mail. The spam filter is awesome, and no crazy pop-up ads. Learn more here. G-mail is in beta right now, so the accounts are by invitation only, but I have six invitations if anyone wants one. Just e-mail me or leave a comment and I'll hook you up, like Matt hooked me up.
