Quality paid mail hosting service for three (3!) IMAP inboxes
March 12, 2014 8:28 PM Subscribe
I'm looking for a new home for three IMAP inboxes. Each one should be able to handle up to 10-15 GB of stored mail. I want a reliable long-term service that is supported by fees rather than ads.

I've seen lots of recommendations for Fast Mail on Metafilter, but their website and product documentation look haphazard and unpolished plus you only get one IMAP inbox per account. With the storage levels I'm looking for three inboxes would cost close to $200/year.
Pobox.com looks much better from a product, support, and documentation standpoint but they also only allow one IMAP inbox per user account. This is frustrating because each account comes with 60 GB of storage, which would be plenty for the three inboxes I need. But since I need three accounts it will run me $140/year.
I'm not interested in Google because I don't like their tagging model, their mail GUI, or their simplified corporate motto ("
Don't be evil.")
Mrs. alms uses Yahoo mail and her experience does not inspire confidence, plus I'd prefer a company that has e-mail a central focus of its business.
Is there some competent well-designed paid service that will let me go wild with IMAP inboxes as long as I stay within my storage limits? Or should I just suck it up and go with Pobox, getting three times as much storage as I need for three times as much money as I feel I should be paying?
By the way, I'll be bringing my own e-mail addresses from other domains but my needs there aren't complex and I'm assuming pretty much anyone will be able to handle it.
