Yes, I do have a work-domain email address, but it lacks IMAP and it's rather non-responsive from time to time, so I choose not to depend on it for the time being (the previous mentioned free services are actually more reliable). Besides buying a domain and using Google Apps on it (which isn't actually intended for home users), I was thinking on having a domain of my own and choosing a commercial email provider that should provide just that: email (POP3, SMTP, IMAP, with a decent storage space). I don't need storage for my website, I don't need an ugly web interface (if provided and looks decent, maybe I'll use it, but it's not a must-have). If it's free, it's ok, but it doesn't bothers me if it has a decent monthly or anual fee. So, do you slashdoters know any providers that would satisfy my email-related needs?"

  • Lunarpages [lunarpages.com] for $7 per month? That's where I'm moving my stuff.

    I guess they have a special going on right now ... looks like $5 per month.

  • Piece of cake. Register a domain name. They will generally include free email forwarding. Have them forward it to your gmail account. Set your default email address with your gmail account to be your new email address.

Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which the only specification is that it should run noiselessly.
