    hi all,
    I'm changing my business servers over to a new host.
    i've pointed the domain name at the new servers.

    My email is dead.

    Does the email take as the "prorogation" to sort itself out? Do you all just wait for "prorogation" to set up and test your email accounts, or should they work immediately?

    Well yes there is a waiting period for your domains & mx records to propagate, but you do have to set up the email accounts with your new web host manually, they don't just update themselves.

    I recently switched my web host and I did all my email addresses at the same time as my domains, but the email setting did have to be set up in a different section of my admin panel then my domains.

    Who is your new host? Log into their admin panel and look around for email accounts.
