i'm not (yet) a costumer of Dh, so i'm not sure how they handle those thinks.

isnt that on one of emails from DH when u signup?

a search at wiki:
http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Webmail
You can check your webmail by going to https://webmail.YOURDOMAIN.com (or .net, or whatever your site is). This is a great way for checking your email remotely from any location that offers internet access!

I have to search around and find the way to check email without using the domain name. Since the nameservers are changed, https://webmail.YOURDOMAIN.com won't work.

thx

IF you go to webmail.dreamhost.com, and enter your email address (youruser@yourdomain.com) you *may* be able to get at it that way, even if your domain's mx has been changed.

I'm sorry that turned out to be a "bum" tip ; I did not know if it would work or not (and didn't have a good "test" circumstance available on my end) but thought it might be worth a try as DH mail "innerworkings" are not completely transparent. Wink

Hopefully, the "borked" attempt was not too frustrating.

If you have set up webmail, it'll show up in your DNS under Manage Domains:
https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tr...in.manage&

Try connecting to the IP address. If that doesn't work, set up your own local hosts file with webmail.yourdomain.com and the IP address and try that. I know that for the Mac, it's /etc/hosts. For windows, I found this:
Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Win 98/ME = C:\WINDOWS

And why not try the same thing with your mail client? Instead of checking for mail at mail.yourdomain.com, check your DreamHost DNS for the IP address of mail.yourdomain.com and point your mail client to the IP address instead.
