You must first purchase a new hosting account with a provider(DialWebHosting) whose mail server supports IMAP that you use to receive your emails. You then should point your domain to the new hosting account by making the required changes in the name servers. Check with the support team what nameservers you must give to the domain to enable it to point to the new server. Once done, the DNS propagates the name change across the internet. It may take anything between 48 hours to 96 hours for the change to take effect.

Next, you must set up IMAP accounts in Outlook one on the account with your server and one for your new server. You must be ready with all the details such as email account password, IP addresses of your incoming mail (IMAP/POP3) server and outgoing SMTP server, port numbers etc.

Once the two IMAP set up is completed, simply drag and drop the emails from one inbox folder to another. Do not try to move all the emails at one time. Drag/drop them one at a time. The time taken will depend on your internet connection speed.

Maintain both accounts for the propagation period up to 96 hours. Then you may delete your old account.

Moving email hosting is not a big deal. Simply follow these steps and change the email hosting provider

First set-up an email account or multiple email accounts on a hosting server.

For this, you have buy a hosting account from a service provider, different from the current one. However, before buying the new service, don’t forget to ask whether IMAP mail server support is provided or not.

o Change name server of the domain to point the domain towards the newly created hosting account
o Use the new name servers for replacing the existing name servers
o Create all email accounts on new server

Set-up two IMAP email accounts on outlook, where –

o One will be sales@domainname. com on new hosting server
o Other one will be sales@domainname. com on old server

IP addresses of the incoming and outgoing mail servers can be used for source as well as destination email accounts.

Now, move the email folders one by one
Repeat the entire process after four days
