Forwarding email without domain


If I let a domain expire but set up forwarding address for the email associated with that domain will I continue to receive emails or is there something else I need to do? In other words I want to keep the email address but not the domain.




the short answer is no.

If the domain expires it’s not yours anymore and therefor you don’t own the email addresses either.

You can delete web hosting for the domain. but you must maintain your hosting account to receive email services (including forwarding). If you want to keep the email addresses you will need to renew the domain and not let it expire.
