I have an ISP providing my web site and a separate specialist company 
the email, using the one domain name for both and it works well.

FastMail.com provide the email service. They have an excellent Spam 
filter and the option of a "classic" web interface, which works on slow 
links for tinkering with the settings. I am using the "full" service 
(US$20 a year).

I expect there will be fewer ISPs and ones more specialized.
