I use TextDrive(.com) for my personal stuff, and its webmail client
ain't bad, for webmail. I've never tried it, but the parent company
Joyent(.com) sells a service called Joyent Connector, which is
hosted, web 2.0ish collaboration software like calendar, project
management, and email.

You get one account that includes TextDrive (hosting, with Ruby/
Python/Perl/PHP, etc), Connector, and StrongSpace (a few GB of non-
public, sftp-based remote storage).

The reason I hosted with them is that Ben Rockwood (cuddletech.com/
blog, big OpenSolaris evangelist and storage blogger) began work for
them. I read his blog, so I considered that about as good as a
personal recommendation :).
