My client already has email setup with a provider but would like their website hosted by a different provider. Currently they just have a NS record pointed at the company that hosts their email. I used dig to grab their two MX records, otherwise they don't have any other records set. They are using Network Solutions as their domain registrar so I'll have to use Network Solutions advanced DNS tool to make the changes.
I was planning on doing the following: 1. Change the NS to point at Network Solutions (this is a requirement of their Advanced DNS) 2. Make sure the MX records point at the old email host 3. Add A records for the new website host
When I click the edit advanced DNS button in the Network Solutions control panel it says the following:
"Please Note: When you Move Name Servers to Network Solutions, your Existing Name Servers will no longer be used. As a result, Web sites and E-mail from other providers will be lost."
That last word has me kind of concerned. Will all the previous emails actually be "lost" or are they saying that email sent during the change over might be lost?
