    I had a website...but there hasn't been anything there forever.

    The only thing I'm using the webspace for at this point is forwarding the email I get at that domain to my gmail account.

    If I cancel it, how I can I keep getting my domain email forwarded? Is there a service somewhere?

    Thanks

    so, you cancel a domain, you still want to be able to receive mail from it?
    i don't think so

    what happens if someone else starts the domain back up?

    sounds to me that he wants to keep the domain, but give up the web hosting.

    fuck, it was a decade ago I don't even remember

    I'll poke around google apps when I get home--any hints which one?

    edit: it's network solutions themselves

    sign up for google apps, www.google.com/a

    follow instructions with changing your domain's cnames, mx records, etc....

    then you can create up to 100 email [email protected], 6gb per account

    100mb webpage, calendar, docs, pop3, imap....etc....

    basically, youre using gmail to host/manage your @yourdomain.com emails, theres also a catch all option where anything that goes to @yourdomain.com will go to an inbox of your choice

    You just put an MX record pointing to a different mail server. Not hard.

    I don't know how to do that with network solutions, but it will be on their website. You will be able to do it on their website in account management, or whatever. Thats how I do they on godaddy.
