Sign Up for a Free .EDU Email Address
Most of educational web sites are free for general public use, but are available to register for an account by using the .edu email addresses only. To get an email account which ends in .edu is very easy if you are a student or a teacher (.edu email account provided by your school), but it is almost impossible for non-educational staff.

After googling, I've found a website that provides the free .edu email service to everyone, the site is australia.edu, a free .EDU email service provider.
you can sign up for a free .edu email account below:
After the page is opened, you will see an signup application form. Type in Desired Username (must be at least 6 characters), Desired Password, Confirm Password, First Name, Last Name, Alternate Email, Gender, City, State, Zip Code, Country, Security Question, Security Answer, Date of Birth and CAPTCHA. Then click on “Sign Up Now” green button.
The verification email will be sent to your alternate email, so this field must be filled correctly.
Clicking on the link in the verification email to active your account. After your alternate email is verified, you will receive a welcome email that says you have to wait the administrator's approval, unless you pay money to the administrator.
Someone said that the australia.edu free email service is scam (you may search the information by yourself). Someone said that they require a donation or they will not accept your sign up. Someone said that he has been successful to sign up for a email@example.com account. Someone said that the backend of the email service is based on Gmail platform (Gmail for your domain)..
I am not sure that because I am still waiting the approval from australia.edu, I will update this post when my free .edu email account is approval.
