I agree. I actually got a domain from google apps, costs all of $10/year.

With gmail you do get IMAP access if you want to access it from Thunderbird,
which I do, accessing all my email accounts, of which I have too many, from
the TB smart folders mode.

However, I think TB now may have an unnecessarily complex UI.
