    Hello

    I need to know if changing a domain name will affect email accounts. Example: now I have on my server the domain name xyz.com and it,s hosting accounts there are several email accounts where users are login in webmail using username@xyz.com. I want to change that domain name into abc.com. Question: how will affect this logging into webmail account? Do they need to login with username@abc.com or they will be able to do it with username@xyz.com?

    Thanks

    Changing the domain name won't touch the email accounts, AFAIK. So if you had an email account using xyz.com and change that domain name, that email account using that domain name will no longer work I don't think. The domain is no longer there.
