Is it possible to renew an old email domain, but change the domain's name, without it affecting my email?

My email domain expired, and I wish to renew it. However, I want to change the domain name. So, I was wondering, will it affect my email, if I change to a new domain name? Will people still be able to send me an email to this email of mine? Or it will be lost, and I will start all from scratch?

    I don't see this as a information security question, i.e. off-topic. But anyway: if your email address is from a specific domain it can no longer get new mail if the domain is not there anymore. Even worse others might claim your old domain and get the mail intended to you. May 12 at 21:58

    You'd have to register the new domain and re-register your old domain, then set up an email forwarder from the old domain to the new domain.

  • This sounds like you were asking whether a mailbox (the storage for mail) is bound to a domain (the email address). It is self-evident that you cannot have the same address with a different domain, because the domain is part of the address. However, you can have mail for multiple addresses delivered to the same mailbox, if it is not limited by the contract with your service provider. May 13 at 7:00
