Mail server migration date and details

The final date for the email server transition has arrived.  Included below is an email I sent out to all account holders on the server:

As some of you already know, I have been in the process of building a new email server to replace the existing one running your email account.  Well, after much more work than I thought would be necessary, I think I finally have it ready to go.  Assuming no major crises develop between now and then, I plan to switch to the new server this weekend (25-26)!  The actual time is somewhat flexible, but will probably be either late night Saturday or sometime during the day on Sunday.

 

If you happen to use a third party email client such as Thunderbird, Outlook (Express) or Mac Mail, this migration will be essentially transparent.  If, however, you primarily use the webmail client (this would be most of you), you will notice a change in the look and feel of the interface.  Do not worry, however, since the general use of the interface won’t change, and in my personal opinion, is much better designed in the first place, so that it should be more intuitive to use.  You will still log in the same way, use the same username and password, etc.

 

I have tried to anticipate any questions that may come up by writing a “FAQ” (Frequently Asked Questions) page that describes what is changing and how it may affect you.  Please check it out if you so desire:

If there is a question you have that isn’t answered there, please do not hesitate to let me know by writing some email to me, or by even calling me on the phone if you’d prefer “live” contact.  (Phone number removed for online post).
