    Hi,

    Could someone tell me what happens if the hostname goes down, I am asking this due to having to move DNS from someone else to the server

    Does it only affect Email or does it affect everything ?

    Regards,
    James

    hostname ?

    In case you are worried about the domain name, transfer and setup the accounts at the old to the new server, point the A record for the domains at the current server DNS to the new server. Also make sure that the mx is pointed the same. after this, switch the DNS at the registrar.

    In this case all mails will be ported to the new server and u will have a minimal downtime, since the server is up @ newserver.
