Moving from Plusnet but keeping personal domain email addresses

Looking at some of the other posts it seems I may not be offered much of a deal to renew so have been exploring some of the options of moving to another provider.

My main concern is keeping my own domain based email addresses. Most of the mainstream alternative providers I have looked at do not cater for this or it is at significant extra cost. I am not bothered about and webspace but just need to carry on using the email address for myself and family. My domain is currently hosted by 123reg that seem to offer email hosting from £2.99 but gets expensive if you want more mailboxes.

Can anyone offer any low cost suggestions or other providers that include such a service? Presumably a Plusnet email only account is only for your plusnet email address?

Thanks

it also includes any emails to a hosted webspace as the Plusnet email system only looks at the part before the @

For example me@username.plus.com is the effectively  same email as me@mysite.co.uk

Thanks, so does that mean if I leave everything as is at 123reg then my email will still be received by PN servers? Will I still be able to manage mailboxes and aliases in the same way if I have a PN email only account? If so that would be an ideal solution as my referrals would probably cover the cost of the service. I have seen somewhere that referrals can be applied to an email only service.
