I'm looking for an email provider that will relay my Exchange server email using SMTP or POP3.

I need this sort of set up since I have purchased a Bluetooth headset that reads incoming emails to me and lets me reply to these emails by speaking into my Bluetooth headset.

The problem is that this Bluetooth headset only supports SMTP and POP3 connections to read my email to me or to allow me to speak into the Bluetooth headset to transcribe new emails. It doesn't support a connection to Exchange or Outlook Web Access. Furthermore, my company doesn't allow employees to download their work email using SMTP or POP3.

Therefore, I need to forward all incoming email to an email provider that I can then set up on my cell phone and access using SMTP or POP3.

I need to make it so that whenever I reply to an email that I have downloaded through this email provider using SMTP or POP3 that these emails will show as having been sent from my company's Exchange server account (myname@companyname.com email address). This way whenever I reply to or compose a new email, no one will know that my email is being relayed through another email provider.

I don't think that this can be done by using a free Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo email account. I am willing to pay for this type of service.

Please provide me with a list of (the best) email relay services that will allow me to do this.
