    IRC is a protocol, there are a lot of networks which use it. Freenode accounts expires after 10 weeks +1 per week registered. OFTC accounts expire after 2 years, and other networks just don't offer registration.

    About Gmail, I registered an account in 2009, and I tried to login using it in 2011, and still worked. So I recommend Gmail.

    I've read about it, and it seems that msn accounts don't have a defined expiration-time. However, AIM deletes your accounts after 6 months of inactivity.
