    I have two domains served by two separate hosting servers, I would like to cancel one hosting provider and still get the e-mails from my domain with this server to be delivered to the other remaining server.
    Can I do this?
    Thank you.:confused:

    Hi seeker,

    Yes, you should be able to do this. Before canceling the hosting you'll want to do at least all of the following :

    • Create the new email domain in the hosting you want to keep
    • Create the email accounts and any aliases/forwards
    • Download the email from the existing accounts
    • Test the new accounts
    • When everything looks good update the MX records to point to the new hosting
    If you have any additional questions please let us know.
