SimpleMail for POP, Mail V for IMAP. Both by Simon Bell.

At the Newton Wiki there's a Complete Moron's Manual that'll walk you
through SimpleMail setup.

(Hint: Any new thing you try - why don't you write that up and add you
own guides to the Wiki and help the next newbie? Much recommended
behaviour, I say! ;=} )

Technically possible, but think of the speed issue.

Then a GSM card. But I don't know about these things. Ask Roman Pixell.
