Regretfully, they are a little dear on the .co.uk renewal costs, and I can't see any info about email hosting on the site either.

Fortunately, I haven't taken up any paid hosting with them, so I can still move on elsewhere when I find the right host.
I like the 1&1 setup where I could have up to 5 mailboxes; these in turn could be on separate domains, so I didn't have to concern myself with catch-all forwarding.
Haven't noted anyone else offering this yet, so I might be doing full circle and heading back there yet! Should have stayed put in the first place I guess!
Unless anyone knows different

You get what you pay for.
We don't have any specific email only hosting plans, but our standard hosting plans all have mailboxes with POP3/IMAP/SMTP & Webmail access.

Having gone from Fasthosts to CS Newmedia a few years ago I have nowt but praise for Carl and his team - what other webhost would respond to queries at 6am, 5pm and 8pm in the same 24 hour window?
Well worth the money.
Thanks to Wallgo from:

I don't need a web site hosting, so there is no need for me to pay circa £30 a year for this, when I can get mail hosting for half that price. If I were to take up that option with you, then my other domains would sit idle but still attract the £9 renewal fee.

I like the idea of having a mailbox per domain rather than a catch-all across domains which is forwarded to a single hosted mailbox although the fact that it is virtually free worries me bit - buy cheap pay twice?
You are obviously well regarded amongst your customers, but I don't think you have the product I am looking for.
Daily.co.uk seem highly regarded from what I can see though.

Fair enough, we could put together a bespoke multi-domain email only package for you if required I guess, Just drop us an email. You would not need to transfer your domains to us.

I don't know much about Daily apart from they are only making 40p per year on a .UK registration (.UK cost price for Nominet Members/Tag holders is £5.00 + VAT for 2 years). So not sure what level of support they can offer for that type of pricing, I suspect they offer domains for very little in hope that customers upgrade to their other services.
Wishing you every success with your search.
