Are you afraid you might lose emails when you switch? Don't worry! Follow the steps below for a trouble-free transition without losing any emails!
Let's define terms before we get started:
- Source email box: this is the email box from which you want to switch
- Destination email box: this is the new email box
- Changing DNS records: this involves your MX records (how to set up MX records)
- Servermx migration: this service copies the emails, by reading your emails from source email box and copying them to destination email box.
The key point is to create the destination email box at Servermx before you make any changes to your DNS.
Note: Is it possible to have two email boxes having the same name on two different servers? Yes! And having two email boxes will make sure you do not lose any emails while you switch over to Servermx.
Once you have created your destination email box on Servermx, the next step is to modify your DNS records.
Once you have changed your DNS record, new incoming emails will be diverted to your destination email box. Some emails still might arrive at the original source email box; this may happen for a short but indefinite period of time depending upon how long it takes for the new DNS records to propagate.
When all incoming emails arrive solely on the destination email box at Servemx, you can start the migration process using the Servermx form.
By following the previous steps, your email service will be switched without losing any emails.
