I’m transferring a domain/client from another host that uses a custom MX record for their email system. I understand the concept, but I’ve never done this before, and all the warnings in the control panel and wiki articles kinda scares me. So I thought I’d run this by all the smart people here and see if I’m doing this right…
- Changed the DNS settings on the old host to DH.
- Entered the MX settings from the old host for the domain to DH under Mail>>Custom MX/Gmail.
Now everything should match between DH and the old host. I’ll change the DNS with the registrar before canceling the old hosting account.
I haven’t created/duplicated the email addresses from the old host yet, because they have a strange, circular forwarding thing going on with a few of their emails I need to clarify first.
The old hosting account is still active, so I would think their email is still working as usual.
So am I ok, or did I just break everything and everyone is going to be screaming at me in the morning?
Thanks in advance for your input!
