    cPanel Community,

    How do you handle email messages that are received by the old server after the site is transfered to the new server?

    I tried reducing the TTL on the DNS MX record to one hour, but many email servers appear to ignore the settings. Some email is received within the first hour anyway.

    I tried using tar with a newer-than date to create a file with all the new email. However, there are multiple sites and some are transferred and some are not transferred.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    You can rsync the user's etc and mail directories to the new server, that should copy the missing emails.
    So far I think this is the best "solution" I've found. Of course it will be a pain if multiple users have this problem.
