Can I keep my transfer my email address to different provider?

I just got email about workspace no longer being free so trying to figure out if I can transfer the existing custom email address I got with my domain name to another provider. My site is already hosted with another company and currently have workspace linked to that.

Your email address is whatever you want it to be on which ever provider you setup. There isn't anything locking that email to only work on GoDaddy.

 

There is nothing to transfer - you just setup the new account with the new provider and update the MX records to deliver main to the new provider.

I'm not sure I follow your question - Yes you can have your email & website at which ever providers you like and keep your domain registration at GoDaddy. It would just be a mater of updating the MX records

My domain name came with free email and my website is hosted with a different provider.

When godaddy ends the free email I want to keep the same email address (currently I linked the Mx records but I still use workspace to read my emails).

My website host offers free email but I presumed you cant just use the same email address without transferring or setting something else up first,the email address itself is what I need since I can backup the actual msgs / contacts.

Okay think I understand,I was confused where a sent email would go if I had 2 setup with same address but the MX record dictates the one to be used. Thanks for helping.
