Any reliable email hosting recommendations please?

My website and POP emails are hosted by freeparking.co.uk

I am having problems with sending all emails today coming back with one of:

  • 550 pointing to mailgate.freeparking.co.uk
  • 503 Valid RCPT command must precede DATA
  • Connection to the server interrupted
  • The server responded: 550 pointing to mailgate.

Not to mention

  • The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

for various valid email addresses recently.

I also find that the server is often unavailable from my phone and I will get a few hours worth of emails all at once later.

All in all, I am rather fed up with the unreliability of the whole service.

My website is also hosted by freeparking.  Does anyone have any good recommendations for a reliable email provider where

  • I can have my emails as luke@luke.com (obviously not actually my email address)
  • It offers wildcard forwarding, such as if someone were to type luk@luke.com by accident (or any other random blahblahblah@luke.com)   it would be forwarded to an email of my choice.  Freeparking no longer offer this, so I have to put in individual forwarding for most items where an error may be made, but anything random@luke.com gets lost in the ether!
  • Reasonable pricing
  • My website is currently written by me (using publisher) and is ok but not fantastic.  If there is a good website template help that would be advantageous.
  • Reliable, reliable, reliable

Thanks in advance
