In short - Gmail. Why are you sick to death of it? I've never had an issue and it's been rock solid ever since I've started using it.

Account disabled without any warning / reason? I have heard it happening, though I've been lucky enough to escape that one so far at least!

If this is the case (and if not, what is it?) then I'm afraid your only reliable option is to use a paid service. Any free service provider has the option to switch off your account if they feel like it, and because you're not paying you're not going to be guaranteed any support either.

I know that you wouldn't want to do this, and it's kinda off topic... But I just set up a Mail Server on my server (Exchange Server 2010). It's neat! If you wanted a Paid Service, and could get one that had Outlook Web Access... Although Google App's for Domains has always sufficed in for me!
