NOTE TO ALL USERS: If you have correctly set your phone or mail software to use your mail server mail.yourdomain nothing will be effected. If you used a specific server hostname ie: serverx.lowesthosting.com or IP address you will need to update your system to the proper mail.yourdomain for you to map to the correct mail server. Email servers are fluid and can change but this will never effect you if you use the correct mail.yourdomain settings. See knowledge base on configuring your software or device.
NOTE FOR EXTERNAL DNS USERS: If your domain is NOT using our name servers ns1.lowesthosting.com / ns2.lowesthosting.com then you are using an external DNS provider your servers ip address and mail server hostname may have changed. Refer to our DNS info page to insure your DNS zone records are up to date.
