I use pair.net for my domain yelsew.com. It works out about a tenner a
month. I have ssh/telnet/ftp access to a freebsd box, and anything to
@yelsew.com comes to me. I use procmail on it, but I'm sure I could
imap or pop in, or whatever, if I were so I inclined.

I imagine they'd set up extra MX records (@fluffy.yelsew.com, anybody?)
for me if I asked nicely, but I've never felt the need. Mind you, that
domain is just for personal stuff. The only reason I don't use work
for all the above is that I want my mail to still work reliably
when (sorry, if) work and I part company at some stage. ;-)
