Access old server?


#1

Hi there,

I changed on of my domains to use Gmail as the mail provider. Everything works great, but I’m wondering if there is some way to access the old Dreamhost mail with my mail application without changing back the mail handling to Dreamhost in order to make a backup of that email to transfer it to the new Gmail accounts? The reason I don’t want to switch back is because there are a number of family email account already switched over : )

So, in short, I’d like to connect to the old dreamhost mail server via IMAP from my Mail app and create an archive. (My dad never setup a mail application and always used squirrel mail, and so he has none of his old messages)

Thank you!

The mail server is SERVER.mail.dreamhost.com. Find out what your mail SERVER is by going to the panel and clicking Account Status in the upper right corner.
