Want to transfer the service that houses our email addresses to GoDaddy. Is this difficult to do?

Originally, we found and registered the domain through GoDaddy (and have a GoDaddy account). However, to this point, we have used a local company to house and administer the various email addresses. We would like to transfer that service of housing/administering the email addresses to GoDaddy. Is this difficult to do? How precisely do we go about doing that? Will our email service be temporarily interrupted? How expensive is it to have GoDaddy house and administer our email addresses? THANK YOU!

Hey @ConfusedOne,

 

Pricing would depend on what specific type of email service you're wanting to move over to. Which ever you do choose though, I should point out there may likely be some interruption between services involved as there's no direct transfer method of email services between providers. 

 

I'd recommend giving our live support teams a call so that we can go over your available options with you in more detail. Our team will need to ask you a few more questions about your current email services and what you need as a business. They'll also be able to go over what our online plans are so we can help you get the right products and advise on the best way to minimize your down time.

@ConfusedOne, there are many relevant details. Usually the email server is provided by the web site host. Are the email addresses for your web site?

 

Another important concept is the email "account" and "mailbox". For example gary@example.com and mary@example.com are two accounts. Mailboxes normally correspond to individual persons also but they consist of all the accounts that an individual (or job position) manages (sends/receives).

 

Another consideration is how the messages are handled. If the messages are received and sent by a web site then that is quite different from messages received and sent by client software executing locally.
