Paid IMAP/POP3 Mail Providers

I am looking for recommendations to replace the typical "ISP Provided" FREE email service.
The most important of the criteria is reliability and the dropped messages (sending and recieving) is driving me to distraction (currently Bellsouth/AT&T - but I have tried several others through the years).

I've done the basic Google Search, but am interesting in hearing only from those who are currently using a solution that they recommend.

My intention is to pay someone else to handle all the headaches, and not stand up my own Exchange Server.

Thank you.

Always a good idea to get away from ISP or hosting company email because they're often quite shoddy.  Two excellent alternatives are www.swishmail.com and www.everyone.net.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Vic,

I have set up several clients over the last couple of year (clients who are on the road constantly) with hosted Exchange services from DSL extreme (https://secure.dslextreme.com/medusa/exchange/). They love having the full spectrum of Exchange services (synch-ed laptop, desktop, and Blackberry, for example, not to mention calendaring), with reliable service wherever they are.

Cheers,
LHerrou

Great suggestions everyone.
I went with everyone.net (price and US based), but had a customer who opted for dslextreme.

Thank you for taking the time to help.
