I need a recommendation for a secure, HIPAA-compliant, e-mail server for a small law firm.

I'm an attorney at small law firm (4 attorneys and 3 staff). E-mail is absolutely crucial to our practice and our in-house server keeps crashing and our tech people can't seem to fix it. We're fed up and looking at possibly hosting our e-mail off-site. However, we need the server to HIPAA-compliant (we represent health plans) and we need to have the mail encrypted so that we have some assurance that our e-mail won't be turned over if the the outside server receives a subpoena. My concern is that much of our e-mail consists of confidential, privileged communications and I don't want some outside server responding to subpoena before we get a chance to fight it in court. Reliability and 24/7 service are also crucial. Any ideas?
