Used to, for both home and work, for about 10 years. Still have a
'server' at home to pool mail from local hosts and get it out to a
'real' mail server, but now all of the heavy lifting is done at/by
bluehost.com. The ONLY things I really miss are nightly tarballs of my
mailboxes, pine (don't judge), and some more coplex filtering/scripting
I CAN do with bluehost, but not as easily.

Generally set up exim on new machines. My old servers ran sendmail
because I knew it pretty well and if it ain't broke . . . POP and IMAP
were both options. I have everyone at work set up for IMAP w/ bluehost
now (mostly using Thunderbird/IceDove or in rare cases, SquirrelMail web
client on the client end).

I have a couple gmail accounts so I can use other google features, but
it is by no means my main mail provider.
(I seem to have lost the signature for this account.)
