I have a client that has a company with a web site. http://abcxyz.com
. The original web development company has dissolved and the owner has hired me to update his company web site.
I have created a new web site and I am ready to change the name servers to our hosting account(name server). However, there is a problem. One of 'abcxyx' company's employees checks his email from the current name server's web interface. Hence, there is no copy of the employee's email/contacts on any device. The company cannot afford to loose these emails.
I spoke with the employee and he would like to begin using Outlook. My plan is to:
1. Setup Outlook, with the IMAP settings of the current name server, on the employees laptop.
a. Then download a copy of the emails/contacts into Outlook, on the employees laptop.
2. I will then check the web interface to make sure that there still is a copy of all of the employee's emails/contacts in the web interface.
3. After all of the emails/contacts have been copied down to the laptop, I am planning on changing the IMAP settings, in the outlook Client, to the new name servers(on GoDaddy) witch will host the new web site and email accounts.
4. Then, I will contact godaddy and initiate the name server change.
5. After the name servers and MX record information has changed, in theory the new IMAP GoDaddy email accounts should synch up with the 'abcxyz' s employees laptop and transfer a copy of all of the emails to the new GoDaddy email account.
My question is how does the above plan sound like? Am I missing anything?
