What email(POP compatible) has the best cost effectiveness?

I want to know what the best email is that offers POP. I like myrealbox(free), but it isn’t working as well lately. Yahoo is $20 a year. Is that a good rate? What do you recommend?

gmail is slated to start offering POP3

Really? Because that’s the only feature that I miss.

After checking out several services that offered POP, I went with:

Fastmail

They have a free service, and three paid levels at either a one-time $14.95, or $19.95 or $39.95 a year.

Worth checking out.

Coming soon

I personally like Yahoo mail a lot. I could see in the future perhaps paying for their POP access.
