How to find web hosting that meets my requirements?

Ok, so I've had it with godaddy. What I need from you is a recommandation of a web hosting company that has php imap extension enabled and even if it has this extension enabled, the ports won't be blocked (i've run into 1 host with this problem ... i could use php imap function but... connection timed out ). Bassically I want to make use of osTicket and write an app that retreieves emails from google accounts using imap/pop3. I am only askingthis here because I want to be sure that php imap functions are working as it should, not be enabled, but the ports blocked ( which is useless ). PS: i don`t want to rent a whole server computer. I just need a standard hosting account ( maybe with cpanel ). Thank you.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

not a programming question, go ask google. – Dagon May 12 '11 at 20:30
Belongs in the webmasters SO site. but personally, I've used Rackspace Cloud quite happily for a few years now. It's cheap and scales nicely. – Marc B May 12 '11 at 20:34
Dagon, i have asked google and failed... the host had imap, but had blocked ports – Andrei Stanca May 12 '11 at 20:42

I suggest that you think about a VPS system. It's a step between a shared host and a dedicated host with the price in the middle. It's a pain to learn how to set them up but once you get over that hurdle, you don't really have to worry about ports being blocked etc.
