Welcome to the forum, Kevin. :)

No, unless this part of Dicks post here applies to you:

"If you are using external nameservers or pointing the domain via IP from outside, you may need to update the IP to the one mentioned below."

TCH-Thomas is correct but I am going to ignore DNS and only focus on some issues for connecting to the server for email:

  • If you are using your domain name in the email settings, then you will be OK.
  • If you are using the main shared IP in your email settings, which will be moved to the new server, then you will be OK.
  • If you are using the old server hostname without SSL, which will be moved to the new server, then you will be OK.
  • If you are using the old server hostname with SSL, since the hostname will be redirected but not the certificate, then you might have issues.

While I can not cover every possibility and email client configuration, the above is a good general start. All of the listed methods are valid ways to connect and but I personally will always recommend that you connect using your own domain name and a secure port, but neither is a requirement. If you need/want to connect using a secure port your options are to use our hostname, purchase a SSL certificate for your domain, enable let's encrypt for your domain in cPanel, or a combination of any of the three.

 If you have any questions about your current setup then feel free to contact the desk, our techs will gladly review and advise.

Regarding "using the old server hostname with SSL" in your email client, I am going to consult with my migration team to see if we can overcome this issue as well. I can not guarantee that is something we can permanently maintain but I think we can make an effort to deal with it.
