Advice on email program

I currently use Office Outlook for my email program. If I stop using outlook for my email, what email service could I use where I wouldn't have to change my email address?

If you're just wanting to switch to a different free email manager and have your existing emails forwarded, I think two popular ones are Mozilla Thunderbird and Google's Gmail. If I misunderstood your question I apologize.

Mozilla Thunderbird - Features

Just to weigh in another vote for Gmail; it has the best spam filtering I've encountered to date, and that's it's default settings. With custom filters your daily junk mail should hit pretty much zero.
