Lots of email services are OpenID providers: Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, and so on. However, as far as I can tell, those services themselves don't allow for OpenID authentication.

What email services, preferably free, will enable me to create a new email account using my pre-existing OpenID?

Yahoo allows signing in with OpenIDs - facebook and Google but they don't seem to allow creating new accounts through OpenIDs. – Chethan S. Sep 6 '13 at 14:29
Can you elaborate on your comment about "Yahoo allows signing in with OpenIDs"? I see buttons on their login page for Google and Facebook, but not for other generic OpenID providers (like WordPress or VeriSign). – sffc Sep 7 '13 at 22:05
You are right, only facebook and Google are allowed (which I have mentioned above). – Chethan S. Sep 8 '13 at 3:11
