I have a domain (it was a service that let you register a * subdomain for your own use) that I linked with Google Apps. This was so I could have an email address like have recently shut themselves down with no prior warning and deleted all registered subdomains. I realised that I had not received any new email for a week which is what prompted me to investigate and find this news out.

Obviously I need a new email address but the problem is with all the various sites and services that have my email - I'm going to have to remember every site that I'm registered on and update my email to a new one. My question is is there anything I can do about emails being sent to me right now? They're being sent to a domain that does not exist but is there anything I can do to try catch them out of the ether?

No, there's nothing you can do. Any email sent to your address is going to bounce, because the nameservers for the second-level domain are offline (and have been for over a week).

I would suggest you register a real domain name with a reputable registrar this time around.
