I am a DreamHost customer with a small website. A few months ago a lady who liked my website asked me to take over as webmaster of her small website. Now she is proposing that when the bill comes due she close her web hosting account with another company and transfer her website to my DreamHost account. She has paid a few years in advance for her domain name registration so she does not want to transfer it but just have it point at the new location of her website.
The big question is what happens regarding her email account that is currently part of her web hosting account? Her email address is of the form firstname.lastname@example.org. She uses her email for everything and she considers it very important to keep her email address!
Is it possible to transfer her email account to my DreamHost web hosting account? What options do we have and how should I advise her? I have never had a DreamHost email account but maybe I should create one just to try it.
