If you have no plans to ever move a popular web site to them, then a tiny 
plan at A Small Orange should fit your needs. $25 per year and the only 
limits are bandwidth, storage and 1000 emails per hour. Do not use IMAP 
myself but positive they have it. 

They are owned by AIG and bad things have happened at some of the other 83 
hosting compines owned by AIG. Not aware of any at ASO or involving email.
