I've been redirecting all webmail (currently gmail and my ISP) to a Fastmail¹ account for nearly ten years then using fetchmail and nmh (+ emacs/mh-e at times) to read it with no problems. Sending via their servers and a basic postfix installation here has been reliable.
I don't know if their service meets the OPs needs but may be worth a look, and they're pretty cheap for basic email. Regards Joe ¹https://www.fastmail.com -- “Blood sacrifices keep the planet from eating your feet” -- Red
