It all depends on how important you consider email to be. If it doesn't really matter that much, than any competent webhost should work. If it's more mission-critical, then perhaps it's worth reflecting on the reason there are email-only providers out there in the first place.
Thanks, that was very helpful. However, consider me a 'n00b' in this area lol.
What i am really looking for is an email host with an easy GFX interface (for simplicity). Something abit like what you find with cpanel, but without the webspace.
There is a Google Hosted option that does allow this.

Prices vary based on storage space. You allocate space to each mailbox until alotment is used up (i.e., the 2gb plan can have 200 - 10mb boxes or you could have 20 - 100mb boxes)
They offer POP and SMTP access.
Each e-mail account/address is limited to sending 250 messages a day through Godaddy's SMTP servers, unless you pony up extra $$$ for more. (This would be of no consequence if you plan on using your ISP's SMTP server)
I have worked with a couple of businesses that used Godaddy for e-mail only and it seems to work pretty well. However, some features are extra $$$, so read carefully to see what's included and what's not.
