Fastest Way to Transfer in Domain Name

I need to transfer in a domain name, whats the fastest way?

Change IPSTAG and inport on plusnet portal OR
Can I change DNS etc to Plusnet and get them to do a manual set-up.

Would the second option be quicker, or indeed allowed by Plus?

I'm keen not to loose any email (or as little as possible!).

Fastest Way to Transfer in Domain Name

What sort of domain is it? A .uk or another type? If it's a .uk then use the domain tool on the portal and request the tag change from your current host. If not change the DNS and then use the domain tool. Keep a close eye on the domain page on the portal and if nothing has happened in a day or two, raise a ticket.

I have recently got PlusNet to host two of my domains, done at different times.
The real delay time is propagating the DNS, so I don't really think it makes much difference either way. In my case I chose the DNS route rather than a full transfer in. As far as I can tell no mail was lost since the mail was still routed according to the old DNS until the new ones propagated - of course I am using SMTP delivery.
