How about a webmail system run by a LUG ?

Actually, you want  to avoid using a provider that  dumps their packets into
MAE  (east or  west), and  chose one  that has  as much  private peering  as
possible and only uses the MAE as a last resort.

An interesting  one is  Internap (http://www.internap.com/)  as they  do not
focus on country-wide network infrastructure, but buy bandwidth from all the
major ISPs instead  and run custom routing to dump  your packets directly on
the receipient's Tier-1/2 provider's network

But we're  getting way off  topic here, this really  belongs on a  list like
