How do I check email while my new nameserver is propogating

  • Answered
I'm about to change my DNS from my previous hosting provider to InMotionHosting. I understand propagation takes 24-72 hours. How / where should I check email during this propagation time?
Hello LiddyHeneghan,

It's a good question. The problem is that email follows the name servers. What you should do is forward your email in your OLD host to go to another email service like Gmail or Yahoo. That would be easiest for you to accomplish in the time it would take for propagation of your domain.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
