I don't have current Vancouver-specific knowledge, but if you
can't find what you're looking for as a residential line, you might want
to consider looking into their business packages. I have similar needs
to yours, and I had to get a business line to get them addressed. The
"business" name is just my name, but hey, it works. Many of the
providers that I've dealt with in North America are unwilling to let
their users host servers, particularly mail servers due to the spam
problems. I know in the US, most people with this set of needs go
through Speakeasy, but last I checked (~3 years ago) they didn't serve
Vancouver. Hopefully some enterprising Canadian chix will have better
recommendations for you, but in case there aren't other good options,
you may want to consider a businesss line.
Best of luck!
