I’ve copied the names of the current email accounts onto dreamhost and was hoping I could just connect to both the old webhost email server, and the dreamhost mail server in entourage. Then select the email in the old mailbox and drag it over to the dreamhost mailboxbox thereby transferring all email for that mailbox.
My problem comes when trying to access the account via entourage.
I’m using mail.dreamhost.com as the incoming mailserver but it comes back with authentication failed. Yes I’m using SSL to connect.
Is there a way to connect to dreamhost mailserver via entourage before the DNS change/propagation. I guess the alternative is to download all mailboxes via POP3 from the old mailserver. Wait for the DNS to propagate to dreamhost and then connect to the new account and upload the mail.
Thanks in advance.
