Email configuration: how to use an already created email addresse

I followed the documentation (Email services for a domain with Sitejet - Sitejet Help) to activate the mail hosting for my domain (knowing the domain was not bought on SiteJet). The setup looks OK. The address was already created when I bought the domain and before activating the mail hosting in SiteJet. The question is how to use this email address in webmail? When I email this address, I get a response that this email address does not exist. Should I create it again and import emails from old inbox?

Dear @AJ_Joe - if you like to use the mails from now on with Sitejet, you could use our Mailtransfer-Tool to migrate the mails to your Sitejet account.

It is also possible to use the email services somewhere else, even if the domain is transferred to Sitejet.

Hi @Andre, thank you for your quick reply.

Do you mean that I should have transferred my before activating SiteJet Mail Hosting option?

Does not have to be, but that could have been the best solution.

Is the email address still active with the old provider?

@Andre, I have just checked the thread that you have linked, and I guess it has the answer.

To answer your question: once I have activated the mail hosting on Sitejet, the already existing email, which was on the old provider, is no longer functional. So I had to create it from the SiteJet side. Fortunately it was a new address, so transferring emails was not needed.

I would suggest including the answer of Kamil in the documentation.
