Question App to Download Web Based Email


OK, so in my 20 years of computering, I have never used anything but web based email (this not for 20 years, I give you that). I have installed email clients for "friends" of mine and set them up and stuff but that's it. Is there a way (an application) that retrieves my emails from an web based service like yahoo or operamail? I see there is something called gotmail for hotmail but is that all? I use operamail and they want for POP3 stuff money, actual money which I don't have. And question number 2: Are there web based email services that give you POP3 for "free"?
I hope me using the term POP3 actually makes sense to you 'cause I am just faking it.

In yahoo mail there is an option you have to activate to have pop3. In my country is free, but i think that few years ago people had to pay in anothers countries, but now i don't know. You can use thunderbird to download pop3 mail and you can use hotwayd + thunderbird to get email from hotmail.
