I want to transfer my domain from Dreamhost to Hover, then transfer my email address from Dreamhost to Webfaction. Is there a way to do this without making the email address unreachable for several days, or getting a delay in receiving email?

What you need to do is:

  1. Add your domain to WebFaction's control panel.
  2. Create your mailboxes and email addresses in WebFaction's control panel.
  3. Transfer your domain to Hover.
  4. Point your MX records at WebFaction.
  5. Continue checking your email at both Dreamhost and at WebFaction while the MX change is propagating.
  6. When you stop receiving mail at Dreamhost, then it's safe to terminate your email service there.

Hope that helps!
