Moving Your Email Account From Another Server To Thexyz

edited June 2012 in Email
Before changing the Name Servers remember that you will need to backup and re-configure email accounts that you currently use associated to the domain.

The steps to do this would be:

1. Backup current emails from Mail Client (Outlook) or current server.
2. Create new email accounts with Thexyz.
3. Change Name Servers (ns1.thexyzserver.com and ns2.thexyzserver.com)
4. Configure your email settings with new correct details: <!-- l --><a class="postlink-local" href="http://forum.thexyz.net/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=1660">viewtopic.php?f=71&t=1660</a><!-- l -->
5. Name server changes may require up to 24 hours to take effect. You may find that some email continues to go through the old account and through the new one during initial propagation period.

By following these steps you will ensure that your email continues to be received during propagation period. You may have some trouble sending email for a few hours so it is best to initiate the name server change at a time when you will not need to urgently send email.
