Now it can be something for lawyers... You have to check the agreement with the provider... It is probably not in your favor... In most cases that is the true profit, charge money for sale but actually rent it...

You may come to terms with them peacefully, or wait until the 'rent' is over and buy it via a true domain seller (however it is not granted that your current provider will really release the name, they may hold to it to annoy you)...

An other option is to dump the email service but keep the domain with them...

In the best case scenario you can force them to list you as owner (which means they have the worst lawyers in the neighborhood)...

EDIT:
I saw OG's post - it seems you are good (I had very bad experience with a very similar situation some years ago)...
