I have a domain name hosted by some company and was getting the site hosting too but did not renew due to management change in the web hosting company.
At present I am managing the site through URL forwarding via a control panel hostname registry company.
I have also created few email addresses and get them forwarded to my other email addresses through the same control panel.
But most of the emails never arrive at my destination address nor returned to the sender - they kind of lost in the cyberspace conveniently by the name registry host I have. When I raise the issue with them, they say it is working and they start working for few days then stops again. They say maybe gone to spam folder of my forwarded email address, when I check the spam box they say if it contains ads it maybe blocked by their email forwarding filters and it sound like another BS to me.
Would email forwarding domain name host of mine, deliberately not forwarding them, if they do does it cost them anything at all, so that they don't do it?
What other ways I could get some sort of email hosting free in somewhere else?
or have you experienced a reliable domain name host that does a reliable forwarding I should switch to?
Any reliable free web hosts/email hosts?
is it possible to get an email host somewhere else and keep the domain somewhere else?
Any suggestions appreciated
All the best
PS ( I have a bit of a credit card payment situation because I deliberately blocked my credit card payments online, so I rather prefer not to deal with paid hosting for a while)
PS: Reliability and first hand experience are the main flavor for me please
It's most likely their mailserver messing up or filters catching the legitimate mails.
It is possible to have email hosted one place, and your domain hosted somewhere else. The company or host who manages your DNS will have to change your MX Record. Your host may also have to edit a few files so emails from any domain on their server isn't delivered to a local mailbox.
Thank you vince, do you know any reliable domain name host which reliably forwards your emails?
Other than that do you know any reliable and free web host, I could use, through my current domain name host control panel?
Or any suggestions to have my mails reliably arrive ?
As I said before:

I can't reccommend any hosts offhand that provide Mail-Only hosting plans. However, I would bet a good number of hosts would be able to accomodate your needs. If you see a host who you think might be realiable, you could always drop them an email to see if they could provide a custom email-only plan.
As for free hosts... Most of the time *free* and *reliable* don't work so well in the same sentence. An email-only type plan should be pretty cost effective, and some hosts accept more than just credit cards (paypal, eCheck, ect....)
