    Ive just did the migration from one server to another. Connecting to that all domains DNS were changed to point to the new vps.

    Now the problem is that some clients didnt export contact list from webmail. Thay also cannot login on the old address of webmail because now domain is pointing to the new server. Is there any way to get access to the mailbox or only for this email list?

    The second problem is that clients lost some emails where DNS propagation was in progress. Is there any way to get this emails from the old server to the new one? Are they stored in some files on the FTP?

    Hello,

    You could theoretically create a temporary A record for say "oldserver.yourhostname.tld" to point the the A record of the old server. Then have clients log on to oldserver.yourhostname.tld to retrieve any mail.
