Now the next thing you want to do is use the, just as free, Google Apps
service, which lets you host mail for your own domain on GMail as well...

My e-mail is hosted on GMail. I have the DNS configuration
rights... So I configured the MX records for my domain to point to the
relevant SMTP servers of GMail... and voila. IMAP and Web Mail for
free... all hosted at Google.

And GMail has a great client for Nokia phones... which offers GMail and
Google Apps mail access... multiple accounts in one tool. Very slick.
