Moving email off of DH...can site stay?


#1

I’m considering setting up SBS server for my company, mostly to access some of the Exchange features for mobile devices etc and remote web workplace.
However I would really like DH to keep hosting my site at it’s present address. Is it possible to do this, and any tips on the best way to go about it without having my email go down for 3 weeks ;)?

Due to the nature of DNS, there will always be a delay until full propagation. In order to host your own email, you’ll have to update the MX records.
