Transfer emails to Forpsi

To transfer your email services to Forpsi, you have to do these steps:
 
1. Order one of served hostings  (Easy, Advanced, Professional) or the additional service E-mails, see the offer on our page.
  • hosting includes also the space for web, trial period 18 days
2. Create your mailboxes
  • if you entered names of mailboxes when you ordered the hosting or the additional service E-mails, they are created automatically
  • or you can create mailboxes in Administration after login to the web interface webmail.forpsi.com as postmaster, see the article Creating mailbox
  • you can access to your mailboxes in the web interface webmail.forpsi.com or from email client, more information in the article Email clients settings
Note: You can set in the email client both email accounts, the account at original provider and the new account at Forpsi (even if they have the same name, they differ in the used mailservers)
 
3. Change the MX record
  • before you change the MX record, contact us with chat or ticket,so that we can set to accept your emails on the mailserver mxavas.forpsi.com in the time of change of MX records of your domain, see the article Transfer of email services to Forpsi - error "Sorry, relay access denied"
  • set the MX record of your domain with priority 10 and the value mxavas.forpsi.com (for our NS servers see the article How to set MX records), remove the origin MX records
  • if you are using other NS servers than ours, you can change only the value of the MX record of these NS servers, or you can change NS servers to Forpsi (if you also change the placing of your web, or if you don't have the web four your domain)
Note: After the change of the MX record or the NS servers, your emails will be for some time (depends on caching of the MX records) delivered to the original mailserver and to the new mailserver mxavas.forpsi.com.
 
Poznámka: If you have set the SPF record for your domain, don't forget to edit it, see the article Setting of SPF record. And if you have activated DKIM, ask for its activation on the mailserver smtp.forpsi.com, see the article Signing of outgoing emails on the server smtp.forpsi.com using DKIM
