No - a trial account means just that which is good for 60 days. If you allow your .Mac trial account to expire without purchasing a .Mac account, you won't be able to use that address either after purchasing an account. If you want to keep this email address, you must purchase a .Mac account before your 60 day trial expires. Apple does not provide a free email address - having a .Mac account is required.
You can use the Mail application without having a .Mac account.
The Mail application supports the following account types:
.Mac (which is really an IMAP account and behaves in the same way)
Since your internet service provider certainly provides an email account for their customers (likely a POP account), you can access your ISP's email account with the Mail.app.
I access a POP account provided by my ISP, a .Mac account and a business POP account provided by my employer with the Mail application and I can access more accounts with the Mail application if I needed or wanted to.
