Will my existing email accounts be transferred over as well?

If your previous hosting company uses cPanel, then we can migrate your current email boxes and messages.

Otherwise, we will NOT be able to transfer any email accounts. In this case, we recommend you archive your old emails and create new mail boxes with the same names at your new host.

How can I archive my emails?

The fastest method is to setup a POP3 connection via Outlook or another mail client. As soon as you receive using POP3, every email received is permanently saved to your computer.

I would like to know WHEN I should set up my email at Host Gator when transferring. Should I do it now or after my domain transfer has been completed? Or should I wait until my website content has been transferred?

The sooner the better. I recommend starting as soon as you can login to the HostGator control panel.

At least be sure to create the email accounts before you change your anme servers or DNS.
