Fed up with my existing web-host, I’ve decided to switch and DreamHost is currently my front-runner. I have a pretty solid plan in place to get my various assets transferred over and I’m fairly technically savvy… The only thing that has me concerned is my email.
HERE’S THE SCENARIO: I use IMAP with my current host and I can’t find any literature of documentation about how to “migrate” from one hosting provider to another.
Has anyone else who “switched” to DH experienced this? What issues did you have? Is this something that just works itself out? Or is there some complex multi-step process to migrate the mail? Or do I just need to bite the bullet here?
(Part of the issue seems to be that my current host appears to use a sendmail deployment which keeps all of the mail in one big file vs. DH’s apparent Postfix deployment which wisely has each message broken down into an individual file – so it isn’t like I can “just” copy over the “inbox” file…)
Any thoughts? Any other email “gotchas” you all have experienced?
