Could someone recommend free email service accessible from webmail that doesn't have annoying bloated interface requiring javascript? So far I like gmail because even with js off it still works great - are there any alternatives to gmail in this regard?

reopening, this is OK as it is a power user question and it is not "how do I do X on {specific website}". – Jeff Atwood Jan 25 '10 at 18:34
Stick with GMail- it has the best features of any free webmail and, like you said, it works well with javascript off. – Steiv Jan 25 '10 at 19:09
maybe mail2web. Yahoo has a wap mail option – barlop Jun 10 '12 at 12:05

I prefer two web applications for this task:

  1. SquirrelMail is a very good webmail client for IMAP that is lightweight, simple and stable. Also it is absolutely javascript-free.
  2. Horde is a web framework that includes email client with support for filtering messages and viewing on small screens (cellphones), calendar, address books and much more. All parts of framework are configurable and can be easily removed from it if not needed. Also it can synchronize with most desktop applications and mobile devices, especially for contacts and tasks. Although it uses javascript in a few places it can work as well without scripts enabled.

I like to use FastMail because it does not require JavaScript or any other malarkey.

FastMail is supported by ad revenues, and places a banner ad at the top of the page. Only a selfish person would block these ads with AdBlockPlus or similar.</sarcasm>
