We want to move to a more cost effective option as we are currently hosted by Herzner and they are dropping their basic plan and forcing us into a higher more expensize category. We are a small guest house in the berg getting in average of 20 enquiries per month and never use the outgoing mail as we paste onto gmail and answer from there. We also need someone to maintain our website www.rivercrossingaccommodation.co.za and do updates from time to time which may be once a year or so! The builder of the website 5 years ago is Merit Computers and we wish to move this. He has provided the folowing information in terms of the move of the data. That being said we have all the emails in our outlook inbox and wonder whether the data really has to be backed up for emails as we can always source the info via outlook or will it all disappear from Outlook when the changeover takes place?
"I will supply you with a backup of the website content and the e-mails. Please note that the format for the e-mail back-up is Linux specific.
"The emails available in the users folder are stored in the server’s maildir format which can only be interpreted by other Linux servers using Dovecot / Exim. As such, we only recommend backing up emails using this method if the purpose is to transfer these emails to another hosting server."
Please advise what you can offer us in terms of our needs and at what cost.
