Do I need to reconfigure my email client?

Yes, you need to reconfigure your email client. Please see here


What about catch-all mailboxes (*

We cannot auto migrate them, because the new platform works differently. So you need to change this to a normal email alias and afterwords on the new platform you can create again a catch-all email adddress.


Will the passwords be changed during the migration?

The only password that will be changed is your administrator account, you will get after the migration an email with your admin account details. All other passwords are the same.


What happens with the data on the old server?

We will deactivate your account after the migration and the data will be deleted after 31 days.


You forgot your username?

You will find your username in the email we sent you. It should look like this: pt(a or b or c)XXX


How can I login to my old administrator panel?

You can do this only before the migration, after the migration, we will lock the account. So to login you need to visit one off the following sites: (if you have a ptaxxx user) (if you have a ptbxxx user) (if you have a ptcxxx user)
