Our Desired Setup:

ok....take these steps....

1) sign up for the hosting plan you want at godaddy.......
2) transfer the site/databases, and all files to the new host via FTP using the new account info
3) make sure all is working at new host
4) move DNS at registrar for your domain from iPowerweb to godaddy's DNS servers
5) wait for DNS propagation to occur (can take up to 72 Hours.... usually faster)
6) cancel old hosting account

personally i would use IMAP in the MAIL.APP for all accounts.

Hope this helps...

PS.... Why GoDaddy?
QUOTE Thanks
