Largest swiss webhoster launches e-mail migration service

E-mail transfer with Hostpoint: there’s no easier way


Karlsruhe, November 8th, 2012. It’s a scenario many users dread: manually transferring e-mail accounts to a new e-mail or webhosting provider. But it can be so much easier – with the new e-mail migration service from Hostpoint and audriga, your e-mails will be transferred to Hostpoint automatically.

Changing the e-mail or webhosting provider causes problems for many users; moving e-mails from one provider to the other requires technical know-how and is time consuming and inconvenient. With the new e-mail migration service offered by Hostpoint in collaboration with the German company audriga, the move to Hostpoint is extremely easy.

It doesn’t matter whether there is one or 50 e-mail accounts with ten or 1,000 e-mails; with this new cloud based service, e-mails migrate on demand, fully automatically and without the necessity of installing any software – no matter how complicated the folder structures are. Users can watch the migration progress on a status page.

This cloud migration service works with any e-mail provider using IMAP or POP3 protocols. Many Swiss e-mail and webhosting providers are already pre-configured, as are many international providers. All folders and e-mails will be transferred to the target account at Hostpoint exactly as they existed at the source account. All mails will be SSL encrypted and transmitted securely.

The new e-mail migration service is available immediately from Hostpoint. New clients receive a voucher for up to five free account transfers depending on their service package. Any additional mailbox moved will cost CHF 12. Hostpoint clients can order the service through their Hostpoint Control Panel directly.
