I am working with a client who isn't happy with their current hosting provider/web designer so I am transferring them to an new one. The new company is going to provide both the hosting as well as domain registration. They want to be sure not to lose their emails and contact info that they have with their old hosting company. Their old company uses icemail as their email client. Is there a way to transfer all their emails and contact to the new hosting company? OR would it better to just backup the emails locally using a program such as Outlook or Thunderbird?
Also can they use the same email address they have now (ie. firstname.lastname@example.org)?
Thanks for the help.
