Another great thing about Gmail that no one here has mentioned (well I dont think they have), is that you can get your business emails through Gmail too!!
I.e. for some of my website clients, instead of going with their NZ ISP or through my web hosting, I setup their domain name (i.e. mysite.co.nz) using Google Services called Google Apps.
So all their email addresses are firstname.lastname@example.org
etc, but they are hosted by Google!!
The obvious advantages is that you have a massive amount of storage with Google, and you can download all your email using Outlook etc, but also keep everything on the server without any hassles. Also, with Google basically taking over the world at the moment, the likelyhood of their servers going down is pretty low, so your email is pretty much safe in that respects. Oh and the best part is that it is FREE!!https://www.google.com/a/
You don't have to be a business to set this up, you can use your own domain name. The setup can be a bit of a hassle the first time, but once you know what you are doing, it is actually really easy.
It might be a bit of a side track from what you initially asked for, but that is just my 2 cents on the issue.
