What email should I have?

I have windows live mail and have cox email but I moved and I have another Internet provider. So now I can receive mail but I can't send mail. Should I try and get my email thought my new Internet Provider or should I get my email thought hot mail or some Internet type of email so I won't have to change it if I move again. I don't know much about this and I guess that's why I'm posting this question.

I use Gmail myself as my main mail account but it is a good idea to have more than one email account. If you get locked out of one, or it gets compromised you can set it up so that you can get a password reset sent to another email address. My second account was provided by my ISP.
