I've had good results at : $115/year for a bare-bones 
virtual Debian machine with 12GB of storage. No backups, but no need for 
a UPS and no electric bill and they handle the pipe & ping with a fixed IP.

I'm in the same boat: I use the server to pass-through and filter 
emails, but the only things that go there are public lists, throwaway 
addresses, and log reports. My real emails come in directly to me from 
my IMAP provider, using SSL.
