Copying over your Name.com Email settings

Last Updated: Feb 12, 2019

 

Name.com is migrating our Name.com Email service to a new platform. Unfortunately, not all webmail settings will automatically carry over during the migration which could result in a loss of non-email information. As such, we have compiled a list of recommended settings and a cheat sheet on how to best copy them over to the new version of the product.

These instructions will cover where to locate your existing settings and where to duplicate them in our new webmail once the transition takes place on Jan. 30, 2019. If you are reading this before Jan. 30, please review your Name.com Email settings and then refer back to this guide after that date for assistance with updating them.

Note: All emails will automatically be migrated.
