How Weird..

Just resurrected an old PC and it seems my e-mail on my personal domain is on there with an old hosting provider and an account is still setup
i didn't know it was possible for a domain to point to 2 servers at the same time, and be active.
it's got me abit concerned.

Re: How Weird..

Are you sure the address of the server is using the domain name and not the IP address?

Re: How Weird..

hi Phil,
Yes the e-mail on thisd old pc was setup to my servage account - and when i downloaded e-mail it was then i realised i had e-mails going back years that i dont even remember , so i checked the server settings
I put in my server which ive been using for a few years and got the e-mail from today, of which i had sent myself a few to put my stuff across
ive since deleted the old details and the account from servage. i checked the DNS and the domain has, since september 2005 been pointing to my new hosting provider
weird indeed.
