Hosting Reccomendations?

Hi there. I'm looking for reccomendations on a host. Mainly for e-mail services, I don't care about a web page right now. A friend of mine has been hosting my two domains for a couple of years now off of his business-grade DSL at home (and linux box). Unfortunately, this box just keeps going down when he's out of town. So I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and pay for hosting. I'm looking for:

At least 5 email accounts.
Support for 2 domain names.
At least 250 MB total storage, preferrably without per-account quotas.

Any thoughts on this? I'm a college student so I'm trying to keep costs down. I don't want to give up my domains. I suppose I could use DynDNS to my machine at home and setup a POP3 server there, but I've never set up a pop3 server before.

I was going to suggest which provides a linux plan for $4.95 a month, and it has more than you'll ever use, but as far as two domains go, either you need two accounts, or I think there is something for a few more dollars.
They offer 20 email accounts plus unlimited forwarding, with spam/virus protection. Besides for email there is a LOT of web hosting features (which they can offer thanks to Linux), 250MB space, 10GB data transfer, PHP/Perl/MySQL, etc.

Not sure if it'll suit you b|c of the 2 domains thing.
