I transferred a domain (www.mydomain.com) from one hosting provider (OLD-CO) to a new host (NEW-CO). How can I download email that is still sitting at OLD-CO, to my desktop?
Some email accounts have 10,000 or more emails, so using the Web email client is not an option. I still have an account at OLD-CO, and I have access to the DNS records at OLD-CO.
AFAIK my desktop email client requires that I specify the POP address (pop.mydomain.com). This points to NEW-CO, not OLD-CO. Are there any desktop email clients that can use an IP address instead of a domain name?
I could change the MX record at OLD-CO. How would I configure the desktop client to access it?
I prefer using an email client that stores email as plain text, like Eudora. I have written code to extract email addresses and other information from the desktop copy of the emails.
