IMAP host reccomendations?
I've had good luck with pair.com, though recently my SpamAssassin has been flagging in effectiveness (haven't had time to investigate why). Pair also has IMAP-based Webmail, which is convenient when traveling because it means not doing to POP download business. (Maybe lots of other places have this now; it's been years since I shopped ISPs.)
I use www.fusemail.com and I am quite happy with it. Try their 30 day free account.
I like FuseMail, too, but their webmail system is pretty buggy. It's usable, but it will be frustrating.

Amen to that. But they're working on it.
If you're Linux/FreeBSD savvy why not setup your own mail server? Getting a hostname + virtual server from someplace like JVDS  is pretty cheap. With that you can setup an IMAP server (my preference is Cyrus, but there are a few out there) and SMTP server on your own "machine" with full control. Add in a web server with Squirrelmail (simple, very easy setup) and you're set. You can setup backups to a local machine (tape drive, extra hard drive, whatever) with rsync pretty easily as well.
I use prominic.net for imap hosting. Works well. Has web interface. $4/month for 100mb
Try CommunigatePro. I've switched from squirrel mail to CGPro on my private server and 3 months ago here at work. You can download the open-ended trial (it prefaces every email sent with *this email was sent with the trial version of Communigate Pro*), but you can upgrade seamlessly.
I use Venkre Systems, http://www.venkre.com

We provide that!
