You're asking a lot. There's free and there's good, but is there a good, free pop3 provider? Try http://www.hotpop.com/index.jsp but don't be expecting something for nothing.

I was just looking to use something that could be brought up on Pine, that's all, maybe IPMAP. I dunno, whatever I could use in command line Linux would be good.

yahoo.co.uk provides pop3 access as standard(free). You can use it with anything. I don't know whether they also provide smtp relaying, since I use my ISP's.

The reason I specify yahoo.co.uk is that they seem to have an offer slightly different from yahoo.com (more storage apparently) so other things might differ.

I've been using this one for several years www.softhome.net and it's pretty reliable. I also just got started using hotpop like posted above.

www.freeshell.org

Only stipulation is you have to send a Dollar in. This keeps spammers out or from trying to get free pop accounts with their system. If you only going to spam, most won't waste their time in sending a simple dollar. Plus it sort of helps support the servers, etc.

You also get webspace and also access to a shell account too..
