frustration continues

My email server is still down! I sent a quick message to tech support about 3 hours after it went down last night but of course they have been unable to write me back thanks to the server being down. I just sent them a flame message inquiring as to why they claim 99% uptime yet can’t follow through. I’m about to start searching for a web host I think, or maybe I’m considering hosting my own server. Regardless, here are the  requirements to be my host: 1) LINUX. I don’t care what flavor, but M$ is not even a remote consideration for my hosting needs. 2) mySQL/PHP support; 3) Catch-all forwarding; 4) at least 25 email addresses and FTP logins; 5) Shell access via Telnet/SSH.

If you can speak from personal experience about a reputable host, send me a note tothis address since my normal one is down.
