Any service that's available as a Tor onion service, and doesn't require
any verification, is about as anonymous as it gets. There aren't many of
those, because they get very popular among jerks. One is
(cockmailwwfvrtqj.onion). It came out of the chans, and it shows. Tor
Mail and Sigaint were great in their day, but both got taken down. I
could come up with others, but many are ~hobby-level.

ProtonMail is less anonymous for sure. There is a Tor onion service
(protonirockerxow.onion) but it can switch to the clearnet address
during registration. And they do require verification. But you can use a address for that. But not an address :(
