STARTING EMAIL MIGRATION

 

Create all the email accounts in our system.

Create the first email account at client area, and set it as mail administrator. Later you can define other administrators.

Once the administrator is created, one must log in through webmail and use the batch creation and import tools.

Webmail: https://webmail.freehosting.host/

For individual account creation, use the option:

Settings > Domain Admin > Mailboxes > Create a new mailbox

To create batch email accounts, just paste the data in the path:

Settings > Domain Admin > Mailboxes > + Batch Mailboxes

The pasted data must have the following format:

 email,    username,    password,    disc_space_MB

Example:

   youremail@yourdomain.com,    Your Name,    SuperSeCretPassWord,    1000
   otheremail@yourdomain.com,    Another User,    UltraSeCretPassWord,    10000

 

 

Importing existing messages from the old provider to ours.

Access the message import tool from stand-alone accounts at:

Settings > Domain Admin > Import > + Import Mailbox Task

Access the batch message import tool for email accounts at:

Settings > Domain Admin > Import > Batch import tasks

The pasted data must have the following format:

 mailboxTO,    mailboxFROM,    hostFROM,    passwordFROM 

Example:
   youremail@yourdomain.com,    youremail@yourdomain.com,    imap.youroldprovider.com,    SuperSeCretPassWord
   otheremail@yourdomain.com,    anotheremail@yourdomain.com,    imap.youroldprovider.com,    UltraSeCretPass

 

 

Tell your users of email accounts about the new access options:

Visit the Configuring Email Client page.

 

 

Domain Migration

* Domain migration is the last step, and will enable the receipt of email messages on our servers.
* Make sure you have performed all the above steps before domain migration.

Website and email at FreeHosting.host

If you’re going to use website and email in our system, just set up your domain to use our DNS Servers.

DNS on another provider

If you have your website at another provider, then you just want to configure your domain to use our email service:

Look at the bottom of Configuring Email Client page, at subtitle “CONFIGURING AN EXTERNAL DNS SERVER”.

DNS on FreeHosting.host with other external services

If you prefer to use the option (Website and email at FreeHosting.host) and add to our DNS some other configuration to external websites or services, simply send us the DNS records you want to create.
