Professional email hosting

Just came here to look for godaddy alternatives. Their service is par for me, but their email is a deal breaker. I have been planning to go to google aps for business for a long time now but...just found out its now a paid service (as of 2012).

I have only 3 email accounts. But would like as many as 5 or 6 just to be more organized...This will be very expensive/user/year. Can someone recommend a good email hosting service???

I would love to just pay a flat monthly/yearly fee and have as may or as few email accounts as I wish and use a present amount of storage (between all accounts).

Found these online. Anybody try any of them?:
Google mail (apps) for business
Outlook (hate microsofot)
Office 365 Small business
Atmail cloud
Fastmail
Rackspace email
Hushmail
Zoho mail
Pobox

For email hosting only? How many accounts and how much data? I've heard bad things about vistaprint.

I should also note, I use google for everything else and love their gmail services, and the way everything is set up. Just having a hard time with the Fees$$$

I'm allowed 5 GB. I currently only use them for email hosting and business cards, although I had a website through them as well, but I let it lapse. It says I have 10 available mailboxes, but I only use one. I've been happy with their service, it does the job for me.

I use gmail for most personal emails.

We use Google Apps for Business. Love it. Don't know how much it costs (it's only like $5-$10 per user per month, with discounts if you pay annually, isn't it?). Seems well worth the money.

Any web host should offer email. Those seem pretty hit or miss, though. Gmail is pretty simple.
