Web / email hosting recommendation

Can people recommend a good web / email hosting company?  We and others are on hostgator and for months now, AOL, Yahoo, optonline and other companies are ongoing / intermittently not accepting mail from HG servers because there must be spammers that HG can't stop / control.

Is this a common issue with shared hosting?  I understand - 1 bad apple (one account on the shared server) can spoil the whole bunch (get that server IP blocked by other companies).  So it seems like it's an unavoidable issue in a shared environment. But if a company is better at managing things, I would think they could keep a lid on the issue?

I don't want to move to another company that's just as bad with that IP blocks or some other issues.

Gaurav: thanks.  don't mean to shoot the messenger (argue with you), but office 365 is basically shared hosting, right? any thoughts on how are they able to deal with spammers quicker / keep legit outgoing mail from being blocked?

I was going to try to answer that myself with the thinking that office 365 is a paid service and spammer want to lower their costs, but hey, so is Hostgator and other hosting companies.  although with shared hosting, you get loads of mailboxes for a small monthly fee vs. O365 being more expensive per mailbox as each gets shut down?

And is that recommendation really only because o365 is relatively new?  As spammers get blocked more and more from sending out from shared hosting companies, they will pop for the extra cost of o365 / their IP addresses will get dragged through the mud eventually?
Office 365 is hosted my Microsoft and they have good Anti Spam in placement. Also that also gives you to create ur rules and spam controls. Most organizations are moving to office 365 now a days.

again, not to split hairs / argue.  The anti spam is for mail coming in. the issue I and others are having is that sending out from hostgator (hosted pop provider) to AOL, optonline, yahoo, etc don't get delivered consistently and usually get a bounce back saying the sending server IP is on an RBL / we blocked it because of sending out spam.
Ok then again MS is having strict policies and they maintains they IP reputations regularly. there is no chance of getting their IPs blacklisted.
