Webmail access while DNS is propagating


#1

I’m transferring a domain away from DH. Is there a way to access my webmail account while the DNS is propagating (while my domain is not working for me, but may be for others)? Thanks

You can add the server to your hosts file

Found under windows at c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Add a line which contains your server’s IP address, a tab (or any white space), and then webmail.domainname.com

Im having trouble with webmail at the moment though, it doesn’t seem to work!

Make sure you get the right server! I had pointed mine to the web server instead of the mail server, and was wondering why I couldn’t get it working!

Goto the DNS of your domain in the control panel, and check the IP address that is entered next to ‘webmail’, and use this.
