First post, new to Dreamhost.
I have just taken over managing a web presence hosted by Dreamhost. The person that was managing it before me set up the mail for company.com to be sent to gmail via Google apps. The owner doesn’t want to use gmail anymore so now he wants the mail to come to Dreamhost’s servers so that when his employees go to mail.company.com they will be directed to the webmail feature from Dreamhost, and won’t be directed to gmail anymore.
After searching the forums I think I understand what to do but need to double check as I don’t wan’t to take everybody’s mail down.
First question is if I remove the Custom MX record for gmail from our panel, all future mail will be able to be accessed from Dreamhost’s web mail, or is there another step I need to do to be able to access webmail at Dreamhost?
Second question, once I remove the Custom MX record will the MX records automatically be changed to the following with no further interaction needed from me;
Third, from what I can tell the company email addresses were created at gmail, so I will need to create those same email addresses in the Dreamhost panel, right?
Fourth, will there be a propagation delay when changing records, I’ll do it over the weekend if so.
Lastly exactly what is the url for webmail, if I understand it right they can use mail.dreamhost.com and Squirrel Mail, but will webmail.company.com or mail.company.com work, and will it take them to a different interface than Squirrel Mail.
