I own a .nz domain that I use solely for email (ie. there is no website).  The email is accessed using Windows Live Mail Desktop or webmail via the IMAP protocol from the domain registrar's servers.  I use several computers in different locations, which is why IMAP is so useful.

The problem is that I need to add multiple accounts (different email addresses) and more storage space (several hundred MB each) than my current service can provide.

So, any suggestions about a suitable service provider?  Most NZ ISPs and domain registrars seem to either not offer IMAP, or offer only a tiny amount of storage.

The provider doesn't have to be based in NZ, provided that I can use my .nz domain.

I note that GMail offers IMAP and lots of storage - is that a possibility?

Thanks,

Bob.

You could have a look at WebDrive they offer IMAP and unmetered mail boxes on some of their hosting plans

For an NZ provider you could look at www.registerdirect.co.nz who provide up 10 mailboxes per domain. POP3 & IMAP. However only 100MB per mailbox which is not big these days despite the "MASSIVE" description on their web site.

Thanks for your responses.  However:

cranz: You could have a look at WebDrive they offer IMAP and unmetered mail boxes on some of their hosting plans

$360pa seems a bit expensive for email.

100MB isn't enough.

You won't beat Google Apps for what you're after:

https://www.google.com/a/help/intl/en/admins/editions_spe.html


Free, works with any domain name, IMAP and 6GB/account (20MB attachment limit).

mike: You won't beat Google Apps for what you're after

The Google Apps feature list says: "Relevant text-based ads alongside email". Does this mean that they put ads in the webmail interface (which would be OK), or do they put ads in the text of each email (which would not be OK)?

Just the webmail interface, you'll never see them if you use IMAP or the mobile/blackberry clients.

Thanks for your replies.

Google Apps looks like it will do what I want.  I will check it out a bit more and then embark on changing scary things like MX records...

I vote for Google apps as a free service.

Dreamhost if you want a regular (but stupidly cheap) webhost that also does IMAP and POP and about 200GB of storage.

PM if you want a promo code for Dreamhost to be much cheaper.
