Hello,

You would have to use a proxy. What are you trying to accomplish?

It records what MX (mail exchanger) the mail was received from.  Unless you're running a local MX, then its unlikely your IP address will be included.

However, Yahoo and Google and the rest likely LOG your IP address whenever you connect and there's not a practical way of getting around that short of using Tor.

The recipient who received an email from you (hotmail, gmail etc.) would not know your IP address.  however hotmail logs the IP where you logged in from.  The recipient would have to subpeona them for their records.

If you really want to be anonymous, use a proxy to log in to your webmail.  This way the proxy IP is logged by them and not your IP.

But the chain goes on and on.  If you do something really awful they can discover where you originally came from, proxy or not.  Its likely the proxy logged your original IP.

Of course you can bounce off of multiple proxies too to make it more difficult to trace back to you.  But again, with some amount of effort there is always a trail back to you.
