WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Several hours ago I pointed my domain name to WebFaction. I created an email box/account just like one I had with my previous hosting company. I can check the mail just fine (via Mac and iPhone) but all messages I send go to said previous hosting company - I can see them from the webmail page. When I browse to my domain with a web browser, it goes to the new site, so it can't be a DNS propagation issue. Why does my domain point to my new host but an email address at my domain point to my old host?

UPDATE: I just received an email from someone else in the new account just fine, but when I sent one to myself again, it still went to the old account.

It could still be a dns issue. Are you sending from a WebFaction account to your WebFaction account? If you would like us to take a closer look at your account, please open a support ticket. https://help.webfaction.com/

This was resolved when a tech support guy refreshed the DNS info on the mail server.
