asked on

vps server email set up

I have a vps server
I have 4 domains, I have another domain which I have not directed yet.
Can I set up the email addresses related with this domain before I redirect the domain itself?
I want the email address to be ready as soon as the domain was redirected to my server.
thank you

You have to set up the domain on your server first.   Then point the email to the new server.

What you can try is set the TTL a little shorter.  If  it is at 24 hours maybe make it one hour until it is switched.   But the change still has to propagate.    I find email takes 1 to 4 hours.

What I meant was that I use the same server both for emails and the web site.
my web site is ready, as soon as the domain is redirected I will put the my web files.
What I ask is that what happens if I create the email address before I redirect the domain?
