Easy enough to test. Go to ( http://www.mail.com ) and set one up. I've used 
this for quite a few years for a number of accounts with fewer problems than 
any of my paid accounts. I use one often to test outside e-mail access.

But such free accounts have some limitations, as will many/most paid accounts. 
Sooner or later, the e-mail address can get on a junk mail address list. You'll 
then need to account for mail showing up that you didn't send.

If you simply redirect everything, then the junk is redirected. Redirection 
usually deletes the mail from the account. If you find a service that redirects 
(not exactly the same as 'forwarding') without removing from the server, you 
then have a chance of setting up filters that (1) redirect *only* messages you 
sent and (2) move all items to Trash thereby performing cleanup automatically.

I'm not sure how many services provide that ability. One such service that I 
use is hosted by American Express free for card-holders ( 
http://www.amexmail.com ). I'm not sure how many accounts you can have; I have 
two e-mail accounts under one of my card numbers.
