How do I transfer my email account to Digital Ocean from Media Temple?
I have been using Media Temple as a host and registrar. I plan to transfer the domain name (example.com) to another registrar (which does not do free mail hosting) and cancel my media temple account as i have signed up to Digital Ocean.
How can i still access my email@example.com once i have delegated example.com to digital ocean?
Is there a seamless way to do this or should i do something like this…
1) backup my mail (what’s the best way to do this?)
2) set up a mail server on my digital ocean vps (any recommendations?)
3) recreate the firstname.lastname@example.org address on the mail server
4) import my old mail to the new email@example.com address
