in the midst of this changeover, after I had transferred the 'seasonsartclass.co.nz' URL to what I thought was a stable and safe company, OpenHost (which I had been using for years) I discovered that in the last week, they had been bought out by a company called 'Crazy Domains'

Were they kidding! There was no way I was going to use a company with that name.

However, after a bit of digging around, I discover that they have a really good interface and seem to be one of the better ones.

So, change of plan.

I had previously set up the foundation of the new email system on 'Free Parking' (they are all part of the same company), but after checking through 'Crazy D', it was far more efficient to set them up on the new platform.

So, the codes to re-set your emails are as below, I have noted that all the members of Seasons seem to be using a very wide set of methods to get their email systems operating. I use Microsoft Outlook, which is pretty straightforward... but good luck to those with more alternative methods.

If you have problems, I strongly suggest getting a geek to assist.
