I’m not sure if I need to do anything else regarding email setup from my old host. Once I make the following change on my domain registration account (not dreamhost)
… You’ll need to login to the control panel with your current host (or contact their support team) to modify the nameservers to the following:
ns3.dreamhost.com 126.96.36.199 [/quote]
Does this change automatically allow dreamhost to start receiving my mail at @myhostname.com? or do I have to modify some MX email setting on my old host?
and if so, since it take a while for this name server change to happen, won’t some of my email go to my original host during this change?
