I have been moving to MS live for calendar and documents (its
is superior to gmail as it can have fortnightly occurring events) and
i can get skydrive docs on my phone more easily then google docs.
Not keen to move to hotmail for my email so might just sort out my own
mail server on my server but then ignore it due to the spam it will be
more then likely filled with.

I am feeling this too, however I will say that you will struggle to
get a spam filter as good as GMail, you can do repeating events
fortnightly, hourly, whatever with ease on gCal and what's worse is
it's tied to Android like no other.
I want to try migrating to my own mail system but the spam is just
frustrating to say the least.
