A question about webhosting and email.

I'd like to register [mylastnamehere].com and use it just for email. I'd like to have maybe... 7 different email addresses for family members, and have them be able to do the following:
1. be able to download the emails directly to outlook; or
2. use a webhosted email service through the webhost; or
3. use pine (yes, yes, I know. Pine).
Can I just register the domain and find a webhost that will do the above with email (are the kids still using dreamhost these days? will dreamhost do this? I can't find anything on their site that shows me a picture of what their webmail looks like).
(Basically, our family is rebelling against the new look and feel of gmail - so we don't want a host that uses google somehow. Someone else is lamenting their imminent loss of their shell account/pine through school. Way back in the day, I used to have a website hosted through dreamhost. This was probably back in.... 1997? I have not done anything web-related since then. Maybe I need more help than I think I do).
