For them who have some money to invest: 

helm server

If you host your own email, then you can control everything yourself. Of 
course, you must have the skills to be able to set up your own server, as 
well as having to pay for bandwidth, etc. However, it only costs about $500 
US for the server, and then about another $100 US per year for subscription. 
(Note that I saved the links some months ago, and haven't read these pages 
since then, so my memory may be faulty.) 

It seems to me, however, that a group of people could set up their own email 
service, and divide the costs and responsibilities.
