Thank you for all the feedback.

I have already replied twice, but the messages don't seem to have come
through (trouble with the SMTP server has actually prompted me to send the
original post).

I am looking for email accounts for personal use for me and my wife. And
also for my wife (small) private business.

IMAP is good, POP3 is OK, and webmail a nice-to-have.

I'm considering purchasing a domain so long as I can associate the Email
account(s) with the name. The idea is to be able to move between hosting
companies keeping the email accounts.

Who are good hosting companies for home / small business? What are the
potential gotchas? Do I register the domain name myself and then take it to
a server hosting company? Or should I register with the hosting company?

Some people have already suggested software for virtual servers. Because of
the email for my wife's business, I need to hit the ground running. So I'd
prefer a package where (nearly) everything is ready to go. Or one with a
fast learning curve.

Thanks for your help
