Dumb question, but.... is email included?
« on: July 09, 2008, 03:52:25 PM »

Hi all,

I'm considering moving from Shared Hosting to VPS.  The list of includes here: http://www.lunarpages.com/virtual-private-server/

mentions several things, but does not mention Email services.  Are those not included with the VPS?  Or am I just asking a dumb question because it should be apparent that it's included?

Is there anything I might lose moving from Shared Hosting to VPS?

Thanks for any help!!

Yes, e-mail is included.  :D  Only other big difference would be the move from cPanel to Plesk.  They both do the same things, they just have a different way of getting them done.  Hope that helps!

Just to add more info to Mith's reply. Configured email system is included only in control panel. If you purchase bare VPS server, it will have an ability to send out emails but not accept and manual configuration of mail and POP3 or/and IMAP servers will be required.
Kind Regards,
