Access email on expired domain


#1

Just what the title says… my domain expired, but I have emails that I need on an account on that domain. What can I do?


#2

Renew the domain, right?


GungHost.com :: DreamServers.net :: DreamRegistrar.com


#3

how long ago did the domain expire? and are you still hosting it, or did your hosting expire too?

if it is still hosted…yeah, renew the domain. if it isn’t hosted anymore, I don’t think you can get back mail


#4

If it was hosted with a mailbox on Dreamhost, the mail is probably still sitting there even if the domain isn’t (though, of course, no new mail can arrive there because the domain doesn’t work). You should be able to retrieve it if you know the server name it’s on (obviously you can’t use the actual domain you had as a hostname), and if you remember the username and password associated with the mailbox.
